To ask the Secretary of State for Transport
(1) by what date he expects to take a decision on the extension of the Southeastern rail franchise by a further two years as provided for under the Integrated Kent Franchise;
(2) whether he plans to undertake a public consultation before deciding whether to extend the Southeastern rail franchise by a further two years.
The Southeastern Continuation Review period under the Integrated Kent franchise agreement ended on
The Secretary of State will not be undertaking a public consultation. The terms of the franchise agreed by the previous Administration require the Secretary of State to offer an additional two years to Southeastern, at the price agreed in 2005, if it passes the Continuation Review.
