To ask the Scottish Government what impact the recommendations of The Hansford Review: Unlocking Rail Investment - Building Confidence, Reducing Costs will have on the delivery and workings of the Scotrail Alliance.
Answered by: Humza Yousaf 12 September 2017
Scottish Ministers welcome the aims of the Hansford Review to facilitate investment and improve efficiency of infrastructure delivery, and are considering how these could apply in Scotland. We will continue to work with the rail industry in Scotland, including the ScotRail Alliance, to look at how we could deliver projects in a way which delivers high quality services for passengers and freight customers and maximises efficiency and value for money.
