To ask Her Majesty’s Government which stations will be affected by Network Rail's decision to defer works on the Access for All programme from Control Period 5 until Control Period 6.

Sir Peter Hendy’s report into the Network Rail enhancement delivery portfolio recommended that around £50 million of Access for All funding should be deferred beyond 2019. Most of the stations in the programme will be delivered as planned but where construction of stations is deferred, design work will still continue to ensure work can start on site as soon as possible. We remain committed to funding the programme in full.
