Govia and other failing operators should be stripped of their franchises immediately – Andy McDonald

Andy McDonald MP, Shadow Transport Secretary, responding to reports that Govia Thameslink may be stripped of its franchise, said:

“Passengers have needlessly suffered years of delayed, cancelled and overcrowded services because of Tory failure and their refusal to strip incompetent train companies of their franchises.

“Govia and other failing operators should be stripped of their franchises immediately and services be brought permanently back into public ownership, not just as a temporary measure.”
