An error has been identified in the written answer given on 19 March 2018.

The correct answer should have been:

The trial of 10,000 26-30 railcards is an industry-led initiative to gather evidence and to inform discussions between Government and industry about roll-out of the railcard. Delivery of the trial launch, including sales of the railcard, was led by Rail Delivery Group and it was their digital systems that handled transactions and enquiries on the day.

Decommissioning and disposal of semi-submersible drilling rigs and commercial vessels currently falls under the scope of legislation and guidance administered by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

The Government will be implementing Merchant Shipping legislation to introduce specific Ship Recycling Regulations later this year with the regime entering into force in December 2018. A Maritime and Coastguard Agency guidance package will accompany this legislation.
