star this property answer text We have applied no sanctions against London Midland in regard to performance on the Birmingham Cross City line; we do not disaggregate performance by the train operators to that level. In the autumn of 2012 London Midland experienced a high number of cancellations, largely due to issues with availability of train crew. As a result, they breached the terms of their Franchise Agreement, and a remedial plan and package of benefits was agreed with the Department. As the Secretary of State for Transport announced to the House on 20 December 2012, this package included passenger benefits of: 500,000 discounted tickets, free travel for season ticket holders (worth up to c.£5.4m), capital investment, and additional driver training investment worth a combined £6.25m more like this

star this property answer text <p>As well as the Plug-in Car Grant, the Government is providing funding for grants for electric vehicle chargepoints, including at people's homes and locations such as train station car parks and on the public sector estate. We have also established a favourable taxation system for company car tax and vehicle excise duty to help nudge more motorists towards these vehicles. There are also numerous local incentives such as congestion charge exemption in London and free parking.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>EDF's current aim is for the Hinkley Point C nuclear power station to begin generating electricity in 2023. The UK Government and EDF Group reached commercial agreement on the key terms of a proposed investment contract for the Hinkley Point C, details of which were published on 21 October 2013. Furthermore, the publication of the Opening Decision on the Hinkley Point C State aid case by the European Commission is another important step forward in the consideration of the case and an investigation is a standard part of the State aid process for cases like Hinkley. The Commission have opened a public consultation on 7<sup>th</sup> March 2014 on their Opening Decision and Government welcome all to participate in this.</p><p> </p><p>No date has been set for Sizewell C to begin generating electricity. But EDF completed last year the first stage of the local consultation which is necessary before an application for development consent can be made.</p> more like this
