Scotland 'needs say on East Coast line'

BBC:

Scottish ministers should have a say in setting up new publicly-run East Coast rail services, Humza Yousaf has said.

The transport minister also wants assurances there will be no reduction in services for Scottish passengers on the line between London and Edinburgh.

Earlier, UK transport secretary Chris Grayling announced the line would be returned to temporary public control.

If follows the failure of the current franchise agreement with Virgin Trains East Coast (VTEC).

Operators Stagecoach and Virgin Trains will hand over control from 24 June.

 


The Department for Transport will run the service until a new public-private partnership can be appointed in 2020.

Transport Secretary Chris Grayling said it would smooth the transition to a new operator, but critics said it was evidence of private sector failure.

It is the third time in a just over a decade that the government has called a halt to the East Coast franchise.
