Mr. Holloway: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what assessment she has made of the likely effect on rates of passenger car usage in the region served by the South Eastern rail franchise in 2008 as a result of recent changes to fares under the franchise. 
Mr. Tom Harris: An assessment was made prior to the re-letting of the South Eastern franchise. This incorporated value for money testing of each franchise specification option, which included the proposal for inflation plus 3 per cent. on regulated fares. This proposal showed passenger growth in excess of that forecast for the country as a whole in the present White Paper and these estimates formed the basis of what was contractualised in the South Eastern franchise.
