Parliamentary question: Railways: Concessions

Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Joseph Johnson, Secretary of State for Transport on 16 May 2018
Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP
"I'd like to ask the Secretary of State for Transport, whether it remains the Government's policy to roll-out the 26-30 year railcard scheme throughout the UK?"
Joseph Johnson, Secretary of State for Transport
"This Government is committed to introducing discounted travel options for young people. The 26-30 railcard is currently being tested through an industry-led trial. The Rail Delivery Group is overseeing this trial and the railcard’s implementation. This was announced as part of the Budget by the Chancellor in November 2017 and the Government continues to monitor the progress of this trial. We await further detail from the industry on how a national roll of the railcard can best be delivered.
