We took immediate action at the outbreak of the pandemic to support the rail industry, investing billions in an emergency support package to keep services running for passengers and key workers. The pandemic has had a significant impact upon the rail sector, and we will be engaging with industry and stakeholders as we consider the long-term impact. In terms of pay, according to Office for National Statistics data, rail workers earnings have on the whole since 2011 increased above inflation.
