Cuts In Northern Rail Services

EDM number 1846 in 2002-03, proposed by Frank Cook on 30/10/2003.

That this House condemns the decision of the Strategic Rail Authority to scrap the direct Leeds-Carlisle-Glasgow rail service; further expresses its opposition to recent reductions in train services between Newcastle upon Tyne, Sunderland and Hartlepool and calls for those services to be reinstated; is further concerned about reports of potential reductions in direct services between Newcastle and Saltburn (via Darlington) and calls for the maintenance of those services for the benefit of the public, the environment and the economy of the North of England; and further expresses concern about the potential long-term loss of rail workers' jobs in Newcastle upon Tyne, Middlesbrough, Darlington and Hartlepool that these service reductions are likely to bring about.

This motion has been signed by a total of 21 MPs.
