Date lodged: 27 June 2017
To ask the Scottish Government when it will publish the High Level Output Specification and Statement of Funds Available for Control Period 6 (CP6), spanning the period from April 2019 to March 2024.
Answered by: Humza Yousaf 28 June 2017
Under notice from the Office of Rail and Road (ORR) I have a statutory duty to produce a High Level Output Specification, and Statement of Funds Available, or likely to be made available by 20 July 2017.
This will be subject to timely confirmation from HM Treasury of both adequate funds and governance arrangements which do not compromise the Scottish Government’s discretion with current constitutional arrangements for rail.
