  • In 2009, National Express East Anglia (NXEA) agreed substantial capacity increases, including extra carriages, with Department for Transport (DfT) as part of a High Level Output Specification (HLOS). Is there not a similar legally binding obligation on Abellio Greater Anglia to maintain carriage numbers? If not, what happened to the HLOS?

In the Middle Ages Ipswich was not without schools, there is firm evidence of a grammar school as early as 1477 and probably as far back as 1399. This school received its Charter from Queen Elizabeth I in 1566 and went through a number of guises before it became, what is now, Ipswich School. The school buildings are on Henley Road but have previously been in Foundation Street and Blackfriars Monastery.
