star this property answer text <p>Regulations are already in place prohibiting the misuse of drones and offences exist in order to deter and, if necessary, prosecute operators for malicious or negligent use. Under the Air Navigation Order 2016, it is an offence to endanger an aircraft and if convicted, a person can face a prison sentence of up to 5 years.</p><p> </p><p>The Government takes the safety risks of drones to aviation very seriously. We have already taken action on this by working with the Civil Aviation Authority and industry to raise awareness of the rules amongst drone operators and the general public. The Government intends to introduce further measures once we have fully analysed the evidence presented through our consultation process. We are exploring options, such as improving deterrents for the misuse of drones and measures to improve communication to drone users of ‘no drone flying zones’. The Government response to the consultation will be published in the near future.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Passenger train operators must have a licence granted by the Office of Rail and Road (ORR). The licence requires the operator to establish and comply with a complaints handling procedure (CHP) setting out how they handle complaints from customers. The CHP, which has to be approved by the ORR, should include that passengers who are unhappy with the outcome of their complaint can contact Transport Focus (TF) or where appropriate, London TravelWatch (LTW), who may be able to pursue the complaint on their behalf.</p><p> </p><p>ORR reserves the right to carry out detailed annual reviews of licence holders where there is evidence of systemic issues not being addressed or a significant decrease in service performance. They will continue to monitor individual CHPs for compliance and effectiveness using evidence including information on the number, type and underlying cause of complaints and feedback from TF and LTW.</p><p> </p><p>My honourable Friend the Rail Minister (Paul Maynard) has also been leading discussions with industry and consumer bodies about introducing a rail ombudsman that would improve the passenger voice in rail and provide independent binding resolution of complaints. He anticipates being in a position to provide a further update by the end of the summer when this work has been further developed.</p>
