I hold regular discussions with the Welsh Government and Transport for Wales on rail services in Wales, including the new Wales and Borders franchise. I have also met with the Director of Keolis this week, who have recently taken over the running of the train service in Wales.

The devolution of the Franchise is an example of effective co-operation between the Welsh and UK Governments.

It is vital that Transport for Wales resolves the service issues affecting the Franchise as soon as possible.
