Rachael Maskell responds to Network Rail’s commercial estate sale

Rachael Maskell MP, Labour’s Shadow Rail Minister, commenting on Network Rail’s commercial estate sale, said:

“The selloff of Network Rail’s commercial estate is a short term decision that will undermine the financial sustainability of the railway and damage small and medium-sized enterprises across the country. Archways are both an asset and a revenue stream for Network Rail so this move highly irresponsible. The Secretary of State must intervene and prevent this sale or businesses and the railway will pay for this decision for years to come.”
