To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the case for devolving greater infrastructure powers to the Welsh Government, in particular powers over rail services.

We are working closely with Welsh Government to divest the Core Valley Lines from Network Rail to Transport for Wales, which will give the Welsh Government ownership and responsibility for the infrastructure. Furthermore, the Williams Rail Review is exploring different industry structures including devolution and will produce a set of recommendations in autumn.
