||To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Vere of
Norbiton on 29 May (HL15705), whether any privately funded rail scheme developed under
the Market Soundings Finding Report that relies on a guarantee of franchised train
operation usage complies with its funding criteria and, if not, whether the only schemes
that can comply will be those on which only privately operated open access services
run; how many of such schemes on which only open access operators will operate have
been submitted; and whether this condition was clearly set out in the invitation to
companies to submit schemes.
