The monitoring of Network Rail's compliance with its network licence and any review of the licence are matters for the Office of Rail Regulation (ORR).

ORR informs me that it has in place robust processes regularly to review and assess Network Rail's compliance with its network licence and that it will investigate promptly any complaints by Network Rail's customers in relation to breach of Condition 25 of its licence.

The ORR informs me that it aims to complete its review of Network Rail's network licence during the 2008-09 business year.
