Date lodged: 28 November 2018
To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-15061 by Humza Yousaf on 15 March 2018, what discussions it has had with ScotRail since that date regarding the introduction of automatic compensation; what the outcome was of the discussions between Transport Scotland and ScotRail, and whether it will place in the Scottish Parliament Information Centre (SPICe) a copy of any analysis or documents that accompanied these discussions, including any data on how passengers could benefit.
Answered by: Michael Matheson 12 December 2018
Following discussions between Transport Scotland and ScotRail, ScotRail have submitted a proposal to extend their existing Delay Repay scheme to include journeys between 15 and 29 minutes (Delay Repay 15) for the remainder of the current (7 year) franchise term. This proposal is currently under consideration and as such there is some commercially sensitive information which would not be appropriate for lodging with SPICe at this stage.
