Responsibility for rail network safety rests with Network Rail and the Office of Road and Rail (ORR) - not the Department - but we will support our delivery partners by ensuring they continue to be adequately funded to deliver a safe and reliable rail network. I am advised that the ORR is working closely with Network Rail to ensure they are addressing the recommendations in the report.
