MPs are holding a parliamentary debate in the House of Commons this afternoon to discuss the future of the East Coast Mainline.
The East Coast Mainline, which runs between London and Edinburgh, has been operated by the Department for Transport since 2009 after the collapse of previous franchise, National Express East Coast. However, earlier this year the Government announced it would invite bids for a new franchise.
