The cross-party Transport Select Committee inquiry relates to The Strikes (Minimum Service Levels) Bill currently working its way through Parliament. If passed, the Bill would allow the Secretary of State to make regulations setting out the minimum level of rail services required during industrial action. The Transport Committee plans to examine the process by which those service levels will be defined in practice, and the factors that will need to be taken into account, should the Bill become law.

The clip is my questioning of Anthony Smith, Chief Executive of Transport Focus.

Transport Focus is the statutory watchdog for passengers and road users in Great Britain. Originally the Rail Passengers Council, and then Passenger Focus, the body was renamed in March 2015 as Transport Focus.

It is an executive non-departmental public body, sponsored by the Department for Transport.
