There are currently 170 stations accredited under the Secure Stations Scheme. The Scheme is voluntary and the Department has not set any targets for the number of stations to be accredited under the Scheme. It is up to the Train Operating Companies to decide which of their stations to put through the Scheme's accreditation process.
The Authority's Strategic Plan, a copy of which is in the House Library, explains their current investment priorities in detail.
The Strategic Rail Authority's twice yearly "National Passenger Survey" includes questions on passengers' perceptions of safety. The survey is carried out to an approved methodology in accordance with Market Research Society codes of conduct.
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what research he has conducted into the extent to which environmental factors, with particular reference to(a) litter on tracks and (b) graffiti in stations, influence perceptions of safety and customer satisfaction among users of the railways. 
The National Passenger Survey measures for each train operating company the most important areas of concern for passengers. Details of the results of the surveys are contained in the Strategic Rail Authority's publication, "On Track", copies of which are in the Libraries of the House.
