holding answer 18 January 2011

The Secretary of State for Transport has received only a very limited number of direct representations regarding the performance of high-speed rail services through the Channel Tunnel in December.

Nevertheless the Department continues to review a range of winter resilience issues. While extreme weather will always cause at least some disruption, we will be working with transport operators to ensure lessons are learned from the recent events to try to minimise inconvenience to passengers.
