To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-14490 by Humza Yousaf on 23 February 2018, whether it will provide the information that was requested regarding how the subsidy for the Caledonian Sleeper has been used.
Answered by: Humza Yousaf 6 March 2018
Subsidy from the Scottish Government supports measures pursuant to SCSL's achievement of obligations and commitments as agreed in the Franchise Agreement. Specifically it has supported the purchase of a brand new fleet of trains and enhanced facilities at stations served by the sleeper, including digital information totems and, at key stations, new passenger lounges.
