Julian Huppert: Labour’s failed track record

April 24, 2012 1:15 PM
Originally published by UK Liberal Democrats

The statement is a correction to an answer to a Parliamentary Question asked by Co-Chair of the Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Party Committee on Transport, Julian Huppert.

Commenting, Julian Huppert said:

"Today's figures show that you can't trust Labour with our railways. Their record is appalling: foisting yearly rail fare increases on to passengers while failing to use that money to invest in services.

"Instead, they let inefficiency cripple our system, burdening taxpayers and passengers alike.

"Liberal Democrats in the Coalition Government are doing the right thing to clean up this mess by investing more in our railways than at any time since the Victorian era.

"The Coalition Government has committed to electrifying over 800 miles in 5 years but electrification is just one part of our huge program of investment.

"We're delivering Crossrail, creating a national High Speed network, reopening old lines, lengthening trains and bringing down costs.
