To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what plans he has to instruct the Office for Rail and Road to review the licence conditions of (a) Network Rail, (b) passenger operators and (c) freight operators whereby it is mandatory to become a licensed member of the Rail Delivery Group and to comply with the obligations of membership as set out in the RDG articles of association.

The Department for Transport currently has no plans to ask The Office for Rail and Road to review this particular licence condition. The Office of Rail and Road published a consultation on updating the Network Licence under which it holds Network Rail to account, on 12 June. However, the consultation does not propose any changes to the Rail Delivery Group requirement.
