holding answer 28 June 2011

Officials have considered the study “Productive Use of Rail Travel Time and the Valuation of Travel Time Savings for Rail Business Travellers” but no formal evaluation of it has been carried out. The study only provides a partial analysis of the complex issues regarding the productive use of travel time and further primary research would be required before a full assessment of the findings could be undertaken. The Department is considering whether further research on this would be justified and is assessing options for taking it forward.
