Nadine Dorries – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Transport

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Nadine Dorries on 2016-04-12.

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what assessment his Department has made of Govia Thameslink’s ability to safely transport disabled passengers; and if he will make a statement.

We expect Govia Thameslink Railway to demonstrate its ability to carry all passengers safely through its safety management system. The Office of Rail and Road issues safety certificates for passenger operators in its capacity as safety regulator and carries out any enforcement necessary for safety issues.
