Williams’ rail review – Andy McDonald responds

Andy McDonald MP, Labour’s Shadow Transport Secretary, commenting on Keith Williams’ review into the railways, said:

“Keith Williams misses the point. Continuing with private train operators subject to performance related payments means sticking with a failed, unaccountable and disjointed railway.  

“Instead, we should bring the track and train together in a single company in public ownership – but, critically, at arms length from Government and removed from government interference and micromanagement.”
