HC Deb 17 May 1994 vol 243 cc436-7W
Mrs. Beckett

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what has been the cost of setting up Railtrack Headquarters in London; and what arrangements have been made for the provision of information and answering of queries concerning services now that the changeover has been made.

Mr. Freeman

Staff costs, legal fees and accommodation costs including refurbishment of Railtrack headquarters amounted to some £7 million in 1993–94. Information about train services is the responsibility of train operating companies. Railtrack is responsible for the production of a national train timetable and can provide information about that.
