HC Deb 01 November 1996 vol 284 c303W
Mr. Llwyd

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will set up an impartial information and advice service to provide guidance to the public about ticket prices and through ticketing availability; and if he will make a statement. [1756]

Mr. Watts

Impartial advice on ticketing is already a requirement of the licences issued to train operators by the independent rail regulator. The regulator has all the powers he needs to ensure that train operators comply with their licence obligations.
