S5W-21672: Colin Smyth (South Scotland)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 13 February 2019

To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-20184 by Michael Matheson on 13 December 2018, when it will provide the information that was requested.

Answered by: Michael Matheson 8 March 2019

In the first year of the ScotRail Franchise no Committed Obligation Payment Adjustments were incurred. The second year Transport Scotland received £875,219.14, reducing to £466,941.84 in the third year. The Committed Obligation Payment Adjustments in the current year to date is £1,002,770.84.

Committed Obligation Payment Adjustments in relation to the late delivery of Class 385 trains are not contained in these figures due to ongoing commercial sensitivities with ScotRail and their supply chain which is still subject to on-going contractual disputes.
