Termination of ScotRail Franchise

That the Parliament notes with concern the recent announcement that ScotRail is not due to meet its punctuality target until 2022; further notes that 30 March 2020 is the deadline for the Scottish Government to inform ScotRail of its intention to terminate the franchise early, yet the company has been given until May 2020 to improve under the terms of its remedial plan; regrets the impact of ongoing delays, cancellations and disruption on ScotRail passengers; notes that October 2019 marks five years since Abellio was awarded the ScotRail franchise; understands that there has been no meeting convened of the Public Sector Bidder Stakeholder Reference Group during 2019; supports the RMT union in its campaign for ScotRail to be brought into public ownership, and calls on the Scottish Government to do so at the earliest opportunity.
