Parliamentary question: Govia Thameslink/Rail Electrification

Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Joseph Johnson MP, the Minister of State, Department for Transport on 3 Jul 2018
Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP
"It feels almost like groundhog day. Last night, again, it took me three hours to travel back to Brighton. What does the Transport Salaried Staffs Association, the union that represents staff—and I refer to my registered interest in that regard—say? It says that 95% of staff now face aggression from passengers whom they are unable to give any information, because the management does not give them any information, and 82% say that they have no trust in the management of the franchise any more. When will the Minister agree with passengers—and, now, with staff—and get rid of GTR?"
Joseph Johnson MP, the Minister of State, Department for Transport
"Obviously, no staff in GTR or any other train operating company should accept, or should expect to suffer, abuse of any sort from passengers in these circumstances. As the hon. Gentleman knows, a hard review of GTR’s performance is now under way, and all options will be on the table following that review."
