Written answers (Question to Transport)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 605 and 606 together.

The issue raised is an operational matter for the Railway Procurement Agency (RPA) and I have forwarded the Deputy's questions to the company for direct reply.  The Deputy should advise my private office if he does not receive a reply within ten working days.
