star this property answer text <p>East Coast has conducted some limited analysis on the effect of converting first to standard class carriages on the franchise. Their analysis shows that standard class is not currently capacity constrained. As such, they consider that there is no immediate demand for more standard class carriages and, especially considering the upcoming introduction of the new InterCity Express trains, such a conversion is not likely to provide the best outcome for East Coast passengers or taxpayers.</p> more like this

Using this power, the Secretary of State may require NHS England to commission specialised services for people with rare or very rare conditions. Before deciding whether to make regulations, the Secretary of State must (a) obtain appropriate advice for that purpose and (b) consult NHS England. The Prescribed Specialised Services Advisory Group (PSSAG) is a Department of Health appointed expert committee which was established in 2013 to provide the Secretary of State with this advice.
