Lord Bassam of Brighton – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Transport

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Lord Bassam of Brighton on 2016-07-07.

To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they plan to give guidance to the operator of Southern Rail services on ensuring passenger safety when short formation services are in use.

Each operator is responsible for the safety of their staff, passengers and services. The Office of Rail and Road’s duty is to ensure that those responsible for keeping Britain’s railways safe for passengers and providing a safe place for staff to work do so.
