To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S4W-24253 by Derek Mackay on 30 January 2015, what action ScotRail has taken to ensure that all on-train staff on the West Highland Line are briefed both on on-board cycle capacity procedures and how to provide additional ad-hoc spaces.

ScotRail advise that staff are expected to act flexibly and use discretion to accommodate additional bikes where there is demand, without compromising passenger safety and this forms part of their training.
