asked Her Majesty's Government:

What consideration they have given to the fact that the Watford to Brighton service will from December terminate at Clapham Junction, as the rolling stock is to be transferred to Thameslink, and there are no other Electrostar units to provide this service.

The Brighton to Watford rail services, which run on an hourly basis each day, commencing after the morning rush-hour, will be amended to run only between Clapham Junction and Watford Junction from December 2008. Journeys between the Brighton Main Line and the West Coast Main Line, avoiding the London Underground, will still be possible, albeit with a change of trains at Clapham Junction, as happens in the morning peak today.
