unstar this property answer text <p>No Ministerial level discussions have taken place with their counterparts on the conditions of Turkish prisons where British nationals are held. As mentioned on 1 August, a detained British national can contact our Embassy with any concerns about prison conditions and impact on their welfare. Consular staff will then raise these concerns directly with the appropriate authorities. We are not aware of any complaints raised by the Turkish authorities in the past five years with regards to the treatment of Turkish nationals in British jails.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR) and Network Rail have agreed service recovery plans in place that are activated depending on the specific incident, its location on the network, destination and time of day.</p><p> </p><p>Recognising the potential impact of delays on passengers these plans will typically balance trying to get the maximum number of passengers to their destination as quickly as possible, recovering the delays whilst also attempting to ensure no further delays and obstructions are introduced across the network. There will be times that these plans need to be adapted to suit the situation and scale of the incident. As such it is important that decisions are taken by operational staff within Network Rail and GTR as they are best placed to understand the potential impact on passengers on a case by case basis.</p> more like this
