§ Mr. Bayley
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how much fare income had been lost by British Rail as a result of the signal staff strike on 15 July 1994; and how much compensation was owed to British Rail by Railtrack at this date.
§ Mr. Freeman
British Rail estimates that it loses of the order of £9 million per day in revenue for each one-day strike. Questions of compensation as a result of strike action are a matter for BR and Railtrack.
