The lump-sum payment for wage increases resulting from making the Railway and Public Transport Pension Fund independent in 1994 is expected to be released up to 2035, and to be credited to the income statement. The franchise fee adjustment mechanism is included in the implementation agreement for the main rail network franchise (see note 32). The amounts will be released in equal instalments and be credited to the income statement during the term of the franchise up to and including 2024.
