In June 2010 (MQ 1774/2010) you stated that you would 'ask TfL to ascertain the factual position on nuclear trains during the games from Direct Rail Services', yet six months later (MQ 3595/2010) you state that you have still not contacted them. When will TfL meet Direct Rail Services?

Answer for Nuclear waste trains

The Mayor

TfL has contacted Direct Rail Services, and also other rail industry parties concerning the factual position on nuclear waste trains. The relevant parties are considering the issue. TfL is not involved as these services are outside my jurisdiction; I have no remit here and will not be meeting Direct Rail Services. TfL is waiting to hear the outcome.
