Jim McMahon comments on the call for financial support for the Eurostar

Jim McMahon MP, Labour’s Shadow Transport Secretary, commenting on the call for financial support for the Eurostar, said:

“The pandemic has hit Eurostar extremely hard, as it has many businesses, and the ban on travel corridors will leave the service in an even more precarious position.

“The Government must act to secure our economy, and protect UK jobs and infrastructure.

“We need to see a comprehensive strategy for our regional, national and international railways which goes beyond the current franchise support programme to address the impact of Covid-19 on operations like Eurostar.”
