Dear Network Rail Limited,

Please supply an electronic copy of the text of the "George Bradshaw Address" given by the Chairman of Network Rail, Sir Peter Hendy, on or around 27 February 2018.

The speech is not on https://www.networkrail.co.uk/who-we-are... and the Network Rail twitter team refused to put it online.

I am therefore requesting a copy under the Freedom of Information Act.

Yours faithfully,

@Philip Thanks. At the time that we submitted the FOI request the speech was not on the website and Network Rail had refused to supply us with a copy. We also reached out directly to Sir Peter Hendy but did not get a reply. So we had to resort to FOI. If Network Rail put the speech on their website as a result then that's a good outcome.
