Regulator's response to Department for Transport's rail Command Paper

Statement by Richard Price, Chief Executive, Office of Rail Regulation in response to the publication of the Government’s ‘Reforming our railways’ Command Paper.

“Rail customers and taxpayers have high expectations of our railways and need to be sure they get a good deal for their money. We welcome the Government’s Command Paper and its clear vision with customers at its heart.
“Railways are a long-term business with investment decisions made today having implications for decades to come. That is why it is essential that all players in the industry work collaboratively to deliver a railway that delivers for customers on cost, safety and performance.
“In this context, ORR welcomes the Government’s recognition in the Command Paper of the need for a more unified regulatory structure for the railways and, specifically, that ORR should be empowered to drive improvements in efficiency and passengers’ experience across the system as a whole.
“Strong, proportionate, independent regulation across the sector has a big role to play in making this happen. The Command Paper recognises this, and ORR is ready to play its part.”
