§ Ms Glenda Jackson
Since 1 May, my Department has received 28 letters about Stagecoach bus services—of which four came from members of the public in my hon. Friend's constituency—and four letters, of which two came from my hon. Friend's constituency, about the staff conditions of Stagecoach group bus operators.
Stagecoach does not operate any railway services to Stroud but, since 1 May, the Office of Passenger Rail Franchising has received 59 letters about rail services provided by South West Trains Ltd. and Island Line Ltd., which are part of the Stagecoach group, and four letters about staff conditions. In addition, a further 38 letters have been received regarding restrictions on the carriage of bicycles on new rolling stock which is to be introduced.
