Jim McMahon comments on reports that regulated rail fares will go up by 2.6% from January

Jim McMahon MP, Labour’s Shadow Transport Secretary, commenting on reports that regulated rail fares will go up by 2.6% from January, said:

“An inflation-busting rise in rail fares would be completely wrong. It would make travel more unaffordable at a time when it is vital to secure the future of the network.

“The Government’s incompetent approach means British taxpayers are paying the profit of rail companies owned by foreign governments. Instead, we should bring the network in house, providing better value for the taxpayer and passengers.”
