To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, how much in Schedule 4 and Schedule 8 compensation payments Network Rail paid to train operating companies in each year from 2009-10 to 2015-16; and what Schedule 4 payments Network Rail received from train operating companies in that period.

This information is published on Network Rail’s website - - covering the years 2011-12 to 2014-15. 2015-16 is not yet available and the Department does not hold this information for the years 2009-10 or 2010-11.

The Schedule 8 values are net of compensation payments due from train and freight operating companies. The net payment agreed with individual operators is arrived at through a process of attribution of delays where many factors are taken into consideration and compensation amounts are incurred both ways.

Network Rail does not receive compensation payments under schedule 4.
