holding answer 19 March 2008

Departmental staff work on matters relating to inter-urban rail, though none have been dedicated to work on high-speed rail links.

The Secretary of State recently invited Network Rail to begin work to develop a better understanding of some of the complex rail options, such as new lines, that we may have in future.
