Mr. Chidgey

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many members of staff are employed by Railtrack to oversee safety on the railways; how many of these have been appointed within the last year; how many people employed in this capacity have left the employment of Railtrack in the last year; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Watts

I understand that Railtrack's safety and standards directorate currently employs 103 permanent staff and 12 temporary staff. During the last 12 months, six staff in this capacity have been appointed and eight staff have left the employment of Railtrack.
