answer text <p>The £48bn Control Period 6 funding settlement for the railway that Government announced in 2017 makes provision for the operation, maintenance and renewal of rail infrastructure between 2019 and 2024. It includes a £10.4bn provision for infrastructure enhancement projects. This is on top of new rolling stock, which is procured via separate arrangements.</p><p> </p><p>High Speed 2 (HS2) has a long-term funding envelope of £55.7bn (2015 prices). It is this government’s largest capital programme and the benefits are largely for the North.</p><p> </p><p>The Government has committed £52m to continue to develop Northern Powerhouse Rail (NPR) this year. Decisions on future investment will be considered in the Spending Review. We are working with Transport for the North on their plans for NPR. The full benefits of NPR can only be achieved by integrating it with HS2 and given the status of the projects NPR needs HS2 to be built first.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The latest National Rail Passenger Survey (NRPS) results (Autumn 2018) found that 8 in 10 journeys were rated as satisfactory overall at the national level, with fewer than one in 10 rated as unsatisfactory. Satisfaction as measured by the NRPS has generally remained stable over the last 10 years.</p><p> </p><p>The fieldwork for the Autumn 2018 NRPS was the first since the introduction of the new timetable in May 2018 and the subsequent period of network disruption, which is likely to have had an impact on the results for some Train Operating Companies (TOCs).</p><p> </p><p>In addition, a number of TOCs were affected by industrial action throughout 2018, including South Western Railway and Northern. Parts of the country (particularly Scotland) were affected by Storm Ali during September and October which closed a large number of stations in Scotland.</p> more like this

answer text <p>There are currently no plans to further extend electrification on the Midland Main Line (MML), beyond those works planned by the MML enhancements programme and HS2 Phase 2b. The Department for Transport has taken the decision to deliver new bi-mode trains for MML intercity services. Together with significant infrastructure investment along the route, for example the track and signalling upgrade at Derby station which was completed last year, this will mean that passengers will benefit from faster journeys, and from more seats and better quality trains with as little disruption to passengers as possible.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) does not maintain a central record of the number of drivers prosecuted for offences of failing to stop at the scene of a road traffic accident.</p><p>The offence of failing to stop at the scene of a road traffic accident is created by Section 170 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 which imposes obligations on drivers of mechanically propelled vehicles who are involved in road accidents.</p><p>Although it is not possible to identify the number of <em>people</em> charged with particular offences, records are held by the CPS showing the overall number of <em>offences</em> in which a prosecution conducted by them commenced in the magistrates’ courts. The table below therefore shows the number of <em>offences</em>, rather than <em>defendants</em>, charged by way of Section 170 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 during 2015 and 2016. It should be noted that a single defendant may be charged with more than one offence.</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>2015</p></td><td><p>2016</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Road Traffic Act 1988 and Schedule 2 to the Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988 { 170 }</p></td><td><p>9,825</p></td><td><p>9,056</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Data Source: CPS Case Management Information System</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>It should further be noted that failures to stop at the scenes of traffic accidents are specified proceedings. These are offences which the police prosecute in order to reduce unnecessary bureaucracy and ensure swifter justice. The CPS will only prosecute a specified offence in cases where a not guilty plea has been entered. It may also be the case that the CPS will prosecute this offence when the defendant is charged with other more serious associated offences (for example, failing to stop and dangerous driving or driving under the influence of alcohol). The figures in the table above do not include those specified cases prosecuted by the police.</p><p> </p>
