HC Deb 08 July 1996 vol 281 c76W
Mr. Bayley

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how much compensation was sought by Regional Railways North East from Railtrack for disruption to its passenger services as a result of temporary speed restrictions in(a) 1994–95, (b) 1995–96 and (c)1996–97 to date. [35881]

Mr. Watts

The performance regime was not in place until December 1995. Compensation paid under the performance regime is a commercial matter for Railtrack and the operators involved.
