To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to the Answer of 28 June 2021 to Question 19564, if he will make it his policy to make available a flexible season ticket that is significantly better value than single tickets with a network card for commuters travelling from Brighton to London and back in a day; and if he will make a statement.

The flexible season ticket is a national product, priced to provide better value and convenience for commuters travelling two to three days a week, mainly at peak times. The Network Railcard is not valid in the peak, Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays), therefore it is not available for peak-time commuting. Passengers are encouraged to consider which product best suits their journey and travel patterns.
