answer text <p>It is too early to set the service pattern for the GB rail network in the 2020s and beyond. However, one of the key principles that will guide future service patterns is that all towns or cities which currently have a direct service to London will retain broadly comparable or better services once HS2 is complete. The future design, calling pattern and frequency of network services once HS2 opens will be developed openly, and in partnership. </p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>This assessment will be made as different service options for the post-HS2 railway are developed. A wide range of potential service options are open, ranging from relatively evolutionary change to widespread service redesign. These issues were outlined in the Network Rail report Better Connections published in July 2013, and available on their website (<a href="http://www.networkrail.co.uk/improvements/high-speed-rail/" target="_blank">http://www.networkrail.co.uk/improvements/high-speed-rail/</a>). </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Department is working with Network Rail to design the next stage of the service planning work for rail services once HS2 Phase 1 opens, and looking ahead to Phase 2. The Department will make further announcements shortly. </p> more like this

answer text Across the Department (which includes its Executive Agencies and non-departmental public bodies), there are 2 workplace nurseries which are available to staff. These are operated by a third party. One of the nurseries available to staff is based in Swansea. The other workplace nursery is available to staff based in Hastings and is open to several Government Departments. Both nurseries were operating in 2010 and 2013/14. There are no plans for the nurseries to cease operating in 2014/15. more like this

answer text <p>At this stage, the amounts involved are commercially confidential, as private sector contractors are involved in undertaking the work on behalf of First Great Western. However, the basis on which the allocations have been made is equitable and reflects among other things the need for the public sector contribution to achieve value for money and to secure the Rail Investment Strategy imperative of improved standard class capacity on the Great Western route. The information about the amount borne by the Department to fund the standard class reseating in this joint investment will be provided once the works are completed.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
