Local rail services debated in parliament

MP demands answers regarding "shambolic" services

Train at Welham Green Station - September 2018

Welwyn Hatfield MP Grant Shapps secured a debate at Westminster about what he describes as "the shambolic rail services" between the constituency and London.

In it he planned to "demand answers" about the performance of Great Northern Rail and make the case for Transport for London to take over the service.

Grant Shapps says he also wants to "seek clarity" on the introduction of Oyster cards on the line.

A Westminster Hall debate gives an MP the chance to raise local or national issues and receive a response from a government minister. The debate lasted half an hour. The MP announced the debate via Twitter.
The South East Rail Group, which calls itself an independent non-party political campaigning for "better rail services" for the south-east, is one of many to respond via Twitter @DirectorSERG.
