London Concessionary Rail Fares Scheme

EDM number 798 in 1995-96, proposed by Jim Dowd on 26/04/1996.

That this House condemns the British Railways Board for reneging on the seven year deal with the 33 London boroughs to provide free travel on London's railways for over a million elderly and disabled people across the capital from 1st April 1995 and which will now end on 1st April 1997; further condemns the Government's rail privatisation programme which is blamed by the Board for its inability to bind successor rail companies to the agreement; believes that this is further proof of the false promises made by the Government over the so-called benefits of privatisation; and calls on the Secretary of State for Transport to use his power before the rail sell off to guarantee the original full term of the scheme.

This motion has been signed by a total of 47 MPs.
