star 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

star this property answer text <p>The bus market in England is deregulated. Any decision to cut bus routes lies with the commercial operator. In 2016/17 £2.21 billion was provided by the Government to support bus services in England. This support includes local authority payments for supported services, and £250 million of Bus Service Operators Grant payments with £43m of this being paid directly to local authorities to run services that are socially necessary. In 2017 the Government also introduced the Bus Services Act, providing a number of tools to help improve bus services for passengers, and are working with a number of interested local authorities to determine which of the powers provided in the Act are best able to support bus networks in their local areas.</p><p> </p> more like this

In addition, day to day responsibility for industrial relations and disputes in the rail sector lie with the individual employers, such as transport operators and trades unions. The Minister of State for Transport has no formal role in this relationship.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>However, the Minister often meets with officials to discuss policy areas relating to rail industrial relations and receives regular weekly updates on industrial relations disputes.

For example, invitations to meet with the Minister have been extended to ASLEF, RMT, TSSA and Unite to discuss the development of an approach for the rail industry to move towards adopting CPI as the inflation measure for industry costs and fare rises. As at 6 September, the Department for Transport has not received any positive responses to these invitations.</p>

star this property answer text <p>One member of the expert panel of four independent advisers supporting the Office of Rail and Road’s (ORR’s) independent inquiry into the May 2018 timetable disruption is currently a non-executive member of ORR’s board and one panel member was a previous executive member of ORR’s board (until 2013). No other panel members are or have been a member of a board whose roles are being assessed by the inquiry, and no other companies whose roles will be assessed are represented on the panel.</p><p> </p><p>More generally, the ORR is the independent regulator for the rail sector. As a public body independent of government, the ORR is answerable to Parliament. It is established by statute, and operates under a legislative framework that assures its independence from both government and the rail companies it regulates. The government has asked the ORR to conduct this inquiry within this framework, which assures the independence of this work. As a result, Her Majesty’s Government is content that there is no adverse impact from the limited board memberships referred to above on the independence of the inquiry.</p>
