star this property answer text <p>Government takes train punctuality seriously and understands it is crucial to passengers and freight users. That is why Government agreed a Network Rail settlement for England and Wales of £47.9bn for Control Period 6 specifically aimed at maintaining and renewing the railway to improve reliability and punctuality for all rail users. We recognise performance on the railway has been unsatisfactory, and passengers have not always received the level of service they expected. While performance has improved recently, the new Transport Secretary understands passengers need the certainty of reliable journeys, and is determined to work with industry to improve performance. We continue to monitor the performance of our franchised operators closely to press for improvements for passengers.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>No such assessment has been made, however the Secretary of State's ‘Statutory Guidance to Local Authorities on the Civil Enforcement of Parking Contraventions’ advises on the immobilisation/removal of vehicles. Very few authorities now use immobilisation as it prevents law abiding motorists from using valuable kerb space. The Department is of the view that it should only be used in limited circumstances. Where a vehicle is causing a hazard or obstruction the enforcement authority should remove rather than immobilise. The statutory guidance advises that when parked in contravention, a persistent evader’s vehicle should be subject to the strongest possible enforcement following the issue of the penalty charge notice and confirmation of persistent evader status.</p> more like this
