Villiers vignettes - Sorry the hardest word?

Something to warm the heart of Captain Deltic!

This from Cruella...

Theresa Villiers (Minister of State (Rail and Aviation); Chipping Barnet, Conservative)
I regret to inform the House that there was an inaccuracy in the answer I gave to parliamentary question 58263 on 20 June 2011, Hansard, column 20W, about rolling stock.

The variable track access charges that were contained in the table were incorrect.

The corrected table is reproduced below.


Maintenance Fuel Variable Track Access Charge

When under diesel power 2.74 1.72 0.63
When under electric power 1.78 1.34 ((1)) -
Electric 1.78 1.32 0.57
((1) )Indicates brace.

No shit Sherlock.
Isn't it time that someone in the Department actually fessed up to dissimulation?
