I’m pleased to see that the government have finally agreed to bring Northern Rail into public ownership, but this should have been done as soon as it was clear the company could not meet the terms of its franchise, to save passengers ongoing disruption.
Now the government has to find a way to run our train services better for the sake of existing passengers and to attract more rail users. Co-ordination across the country is going to be needed. Most countries find that government owned and run railways give the highest quality and most efficient services. I hope this government will not allow their political dogma to get in the way of what’s best for our railways again.

Ruth George, Labour's Champion for High Peak

“There has never been such a huge difference between the political parties and the future they offer. I want people in High Peak to know that there is a better alternative than a government which is about to close nearly 20 hospitals, cut £3 billion from our schools, plunge over 4 million working families into poverty through their harsh cuts to Universal Credit and refuses to rule out cuts to pension increases or higher tax and national insurance. In contrast, I will promote Labour’s message of long-term investment in public services, fairness for working people, and decent support for pensioners and those who cannot work.”
