To ask Her Majesty's Government when they expect the Rail Network Enhancements Pipeline to be updated; and why it has not been updated "on an annual basis", as set out in the Rail Network Enhancements Pipeline Autumn 2019 Schemes Update, published on 4 April 2019.

The forthcoming Rail Network Enhancements Pipeline (RNEP) update has been delayed to take account of the way the pandemic changed the way our railways are used. We need to ensure that the projects that we take forward reflect this changed shape of rail demand whilst remaining affordable. The Spending Review set out funding that allows us to continue to invest at record levels. It is important that we are able to provide as much clarity and certainty as possible and the forthcoming RNEP update will do this.
