Scottish Rail Holdings Ltd: FOI release

Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.

Information requested

A copy of the Grant Agreement for train operations under nationalised ScotRail. The original framework/franchise agreement for Abellio was published so I see no difference in this agreement being available to the public.

I understand that grant payments have already been made to ScotRail Holdings and I would like to understand the terms within the agreement.


I can confirm that the Grant Agreement has recently been published on Scottish Rail Holdings Ltd website. Please see link below:-

If you do not have access to the world wide web and require this information in an alternative format please do not hesitate to contact me and I can arrange for the pdf document to be send to you, hard copy.
