Question for Department for Transport

UIN 9601, tabled on 8 September 2015

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to the Answer of 21 July 2015 to Question 7660, by what mechanism would the cost of Intercity Express Programme conversion be met should that option be taken up.

No decision has been taken yet. The Department is discussing the mechanism for contract variation with Agility Trains West, the provider of the trains, should that option be taken up.

I remain committed to ensuring that the trains enter service as planned.
