To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what estimate he has made of the length of leases of rolling stock operating on the rail network; and what the end dates are of those rolling stock leases.

The length of rolling stock leases is a commercial matter for the train operating companies to negotiate with rolling stock owners to meet their particular business needs. The Department makes available public register versions of franchise agreements, which set out the lease periods in the relevant schedules. They can be seen at www.gov.uk/government/collections/public-register-of-rail-passenger-franchise-agreements.
