Date lodged: 27 February 2018
To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5T-00950 by Humza Yousaf on 27 February 2018 (Official Report, c. 7), in light of reports that the delay in the introduction of the class 385 trains has been partly due to manufacturing problems, whether ScotRail has or plans to seek compensation from Hitachi; whether it considers the delay in delivery represents a breach of contract, and what possible sanctions Abellio could face in terms of its franchise contract.
