To ask the Scottish Government what toilet facilities will be available for disabled passengers using overnight cabins on the new stock for the Caledonian Sleeper, and how will these facilities compare to those available for non-disabled passengers.

Each new sleeper train will contain at least one Accessible Coach containing two accessible controlled emission toilets compliant with the EU's Persons of Reduced Mobility-Technical Specifications for Interoperability (PRM-TSI). Other sleeper coaches will contain standard toilets for use by other guests.
