Chamber and committees

Question reference: S5W-16005

  • Asked by: John Finnie, MSP for Highlands and Islands, Scottish Green Party
  • Date lodged: 18 April 2018
  • Current status: Answered by Humza Yousaf on 26 April 2018


To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-14852 by Humza Yousaf on 6 March 2018, what progress has been made in identifying the suitable public sector body to make a bid for the ScotRail franchise.


As previously described, although a complex matter, I expect to make an announcement on the issue of a Public Sector Bidder for rail franchises in Scotland before summer recess and in line with the Programme for Government commitment.
