To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to the Answer of 20 November to Question 190750, if he will (a) respond to the question of disabled access from the London side car park at Lichfield Trent Valley railway station and (b) provide Access for All funding for the construction of a ramp enabling disabled access from that car park to the station and its platforms; and if he will make a statement.

Access for All is already due to provide an accessible route into the station and to and between all platforms, including access to one of the car parks. As only around a fifth of UK stations have proper step free access we intend to target the new tranche of funding at stations that disabled passengers are unable to use, ensuring that Access for All will benefit the maximum number of people across the country. Additional scope at existing projects, such as an extra ramp, would therefore need to have third party funding.
