SIR NICHOLAS SOAMES’S QUESTION ON TRAIN FAILURES IN MID SUSSEX

4th June 2018

Sir Nicholas Soames's question to the Secretary of State for Transport on train failures in Mid Sussex.

I make a respectful suggestion to my right hon. Friend, which is that the rail industry readiness board should be taken quietly outside and disposed of. Is he aware that the rail service to East Grinstead, in which he has always taken an interest, has finally fallen over completely, that trains from Haywards Heath, Wivelsfield and Burgess Hill are shorter and more overcrowded, that people’s private lives are being destroyed and that this whole thing is an absolute disaster that must be put right?

I completely agree with my right hon. Friend, and I have communicated that to the company concerned.
