RUCC Chairmen are ex-officio members of the Central Rail Users's
Consultative Committee (CRUCC) which is the national body.


1. Eight RUCCs superseded the former Transport Users' Consultative
Committees under the Railways Act 1993. They operate as watchdogs
for users of Britain's rail services.

2. Dr Brian Mawhinney, Secretary of State for Transport, appoints the
Chairmen of the regional Rail Users' Consultative Committees.

3. Users who do not receive a satisfactory response to their
complaint from their train operator can contact the appropriate
Committee which may be able to take up the matter on their behalf.

4. In the case of closures of services or stations, for instance, the
committees have the power to hold public hearings; they can then
report on possible hardships and propose amendments to alleviate

5. The Committees can also consider any matter which is referred to
them by the Secretary of State and the Regulator, as well as any
other matter that they feel they themselves should look into.

The address of the North Eastern RUCC is:

Hilary House
16 St. Saviour's Place
