HC Deb 12 March 1998 vol 308 c267W
Dr. Gibson

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions (1) if he will make a statement on the value of the rolling stock leased by Anglia Railways which was supplied by Eversholt, Angel Train Contracts and Porterbrook; [34035]

(2) how much public money Anglia Railways spent on leasing rolling stock from Eversholt, Angel Train Contracts and Porterbrook. [34036]

Ms Glenda Jackson

Anglia Railways receives fixed subsidy from the Franchising Director of £35.9 million in the 1997/98 financial year, progressively declining to £6.3 million in 2003/04. What costs they incur in meeting their service obligations under their franchise agreement and how these costs are met are matters for the Company. The value of the relevant rolling stock is a matter for the owners.
