Roles and responsibilities for enhancements in CP6

Body
Consultation on roles and responsibilities for Network Rail's enhancements work in Control Period 6 (CP6) as this will be treated differently to operations, maintenance and renewals expenditure in the Periodic Review 2018 (PR18).

Contingency arrangements for a delay to the statutory implementation of PR18

Body
A delay to implementation might arise if, for example, Network Rail decided to object to our PR18 review notices (to be issued on 20 December 2018). This might lead to us referring our final determination to the Competition & Markets Authority (CMA). As track access charges for CP5 will expire on 31 March 2019, a delay to implementation would mean that Network Rail would quickly run out of funding
