Louise Haigh MP, Labour’s Shadow Transport Secretary, commenting on the Rail Delivery Group publishing proposals for railway station ticket office closures in England, said:
“Despite the concerns of vulnerable passengers, Conservative ministers are ducking and diving from scrutiny.
“They refuse to say how many stations have alternatives to ticket offices, what the impact will be on jobs, or how it will hit vulnerable rail users.
“The Conservatives should come clean, and give passengers the answers they deserve.
“Railroading this decision in just three weeks, without proper consideration for staff and vulnerable passengers, only risks exacerbating the managed decline of the rail network.”
