holding answer 4 February 2011

The franchise agreement sets out the caps that apply to increases in fares in respect of the maximum increase in any individual regulated fare and a weighted average of all regulated fares. Train operators are permitted to decide increases to individual fares so long as the fares increases are compliant with those caps.
