S5W-19760: Mike Rumbles (North East Scotland)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 5 November 2018

To ask the Scottish Government whether it has carried out studies on the impact on the (a) environment and (b) health and safety of staff of waste from on-board train toilets being dispersed onto rail tracks.

Answered by: Michael Matheson 15 November 2018

This is not work which the Scottish Government has undertaken. Network Rail as the track infrastructure operator must meet the environmental regulations in place and overseen by Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) .
