The Hon Member is aware that the Department is currently running a public consultation to help inform how we specify the next East Anglia franchise, which is due to commence in October 2016. All of the responses will be carefully considered before any decisions are taken and we will publish a stakeholder briefing document summarising the views represented to us and the consultation’s conclusions when we issue the invitation to tender for the franchise. The Hon Member is invited to submit his representations to the consultation.
