Date lodged: 22 November 2016

To ask the Scottish Government what its response is to the petition organised by 38 Degrees, which calls for Abellio to no longer have control of the ScotRail franchise.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 30 November 2016

I acknowledged the specific issues they raised by group members and my officials at Transport Scotland will pursue such issues in their monitoring of the ScotRail Improvement Plan.

I met with representatives of the 38 degrees group on 19 October 2016, where they presented the petition, raised concerns about ScotRail's performance and shared their experiences of using the rail network in Scotland.
