This is a reserved matter for the Secretary of State. Transport for the North has no authority under the terms of the Partnership Agreement to agree to such a claim. Rail North Ltd has become part of Transport for the North. As stated in my answer of 21 June, UIN 152739, no payments have been made under the relevant Franchise Agreement provisions.
