"The Scout Association is a fantastic organisation with a strong membership of more than 450,000 girls and boys across the UK.

I am immensely proud of the efforts of the rail industry and the Scouts working together to raise awareness of safety on our railways.

This is a vital message for young people and one that can, ultimately, save lives. I hope every scout can take the opportunity to gain their Personal Safety badge.” 

- Paul Maynard MP, Minister for Rail, Accessibility and HS2
