unstar this property answer text <p>In terms of infrastructure, we are currently working with Rail North and Network Rail to develop very significant improvements for rail passengers on the Transpennine route with phased introduction from December 2022. The upgrade aims to deliver major reductions in journey times, the ability to run more frequent and longer trains offering more seats on both long distance and local services and improvements to overall performance on the whole route. Huddersfield will be in the heart of our plans to improve access on the Transpennine route.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, the new Northern and Transpennine franchises which commenced in April 2016 will deliver an unprecedented package of improvements including more than 500 new carriages, room for 40,000 extra passengers and more than 2,000 extra services a week. By 2020 all the trains will be brand new or completely refurbished, and all the Pacer trains will be gone.</p><p> </p><p>Planned service improvements specifically for Huddersfield include: new trains, and longer trains, with more seats and of higher quality – including free Wi-Fi, at-seat power sockets and real-time passenger information; increased number of morning peak seats by more than 50% into Manchester and Leeds; more weekend services with some earlier starts and later finishes; an extension of North TransPennine services to Edinburgh; and increased number of direct services to Hull and Newcastle.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The current strategy for the House of Commons Service, which covers the period 2013 to 2017, was endorsed by the Commission in January 2013. It is published on the Parliament website at: <a href="http://www.parliament.uk/mps-lords-and-offices/offices/commons/management-board/management-board-publications1/hoc-strategy/" target="_blank">http://www.parliament.uk/mps-lords-and-offices/offices/commons/management-board/management-board-publications1/hoc-strategy/</a>.</p><p>The Management Board has started the process of drawing up a strategy for the next Parliament, which will build on the current one. This will draw on the views of Members, as well as a large-scale consultation exercise with staff. Emerging ideas will be discussed with the Commission in the new year, the intention is then to take the draft strategy to the new Commission in the 2015 Parliament for its agreement. I have noted the hon. Member’s suggestion to the Governance Committee that the vision should be “This House exists to serve the people of this country and the people who represent them”, and that seems to me an important point to reflect in the House Service’s strategy.</p>
