To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when he plans to publish in full the public responses to the consultation on the future franchise proposals covering routes currently served by Northern and Transpennine Express trains; and if he will publish, either in summary or full, the responses to that consultation before any decision on the award of the new franchises.

The Department for Transport will publish a Stakeholder Briefing Document alongside the Invitations to Tender for the Northern and TransPennine Express franchises, which are expected to be published in December this year. This document will provide a summary of responses to the consultation and how they have been taken account of in the specifications. There are no plans to publish all of the responses to the consultation in full.
