The situation with GTR services serving my constituents in NE Beds via Bedford, Arlesey, Sandy and Biggleswade remains wholly unacceptable. I have many constituents sending us live information and records of their weeks – it is un untenable situation.
The Office for Rail Regulation have now formally launched their Independent Inquiry into the recent and widespread timetable disruption suffered on the railway and published the Inquiry Terms of Reference. The inquiry is being led by ORR’s Chair, Professor Stephen Glaister.
I am grateful to the many constituents who have contacted me recently about the Petitions Committee debate held on 4 June, “That this House has considered e-petition 200888 relating to the sale of animal fur in the UK”.
As rail disruption enters its third week, following the introduction of the new Railplan2020 timetables, Alistair Burt, MP for North East Bedfordshire is furious at the limited services being offered to constituents.
