Question for Department for Transport

UIN 277594, tabled on 16 July 2019

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to the Answer of 15 July 2019 to Question 275643 on Railways: Surveys, what estimate his Department has made of the cost to the public purse of updating the National Rail travel survey.

Answered on

22 July 2019

The Department is currently considering updating the National Rail Travel Survey. Prior to making a final decision on proceeding we are about to embark on a formal supplier market engagement process through a DfT framework. Making our budget estimate public at this time could prejudice the Department’s ability to achieve value for money, so we are not able to share the estimate at present.
