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>In my response to previous questions by the Noble Lord, I noted that a lessons learnt process had taken place following the 2017 hurricane season involving a range of Departments of Her Majesty's Government, led by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). To protect the integrity of this and future lessons learnt processes, the FCO does not propose to make the results externally available. However, the progress made by Departments against actions identified in the lessons learnt exercise was made available to the House in the form of a Written Ministerial Statement on 4 July. On 16 July I held a &quot;drop-in&quot; session for Members of both Houses to discuss hurricane preparation and recovery.</p> more like this
