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>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

In line with the EU and other major diplomatic partners in Colombo our Head of Mission did not attend, although some partner countries sent more junior diplomatic staff.</p><p>The High Commissioner, together with other senior diplomats in Colombo, had one meeting with the Speaker in his office in Parliament during the period when Parliament was prorogued. During the period he and senior colleagues met the President and other Sri Lankan political leaders on a number of occasions.</p><p>We were deeply concerned by the recent political developments in Sri Lanka, and made statements on 26 and 29 October, and 9 November, calling on all parties to uphold the constitution and due legal and political process. We also made a statement on 17 December, welcoming the steps that were taken to resolve the crisis, which has now led to the appointment of a Cabinet of Ministers. The outcome is a welcome demonstration of the resilience of Sri Lanka's judicial and democratic institutions, and of effective checks and balances between state powers. The UK will continue to stand by Sri Lanka as a close partner and friend, supporting Sri Lanka as it works to deliver sustainable and accountable reform, to improve governance and safeguard human rights.</p>
