Northern Rail Franchise

EDM number 726 in 2004-05, proposed by Graham Stringer on 21/02/2005.

That this House notes Strategic Rail Authority plans to review service and fare levels on the Northern Rail franchise; is concerned that the review will lead to higher fares, replacing off-peak rail services with buses, line closures and job losses; further notes that the Northern Rail franchise has only operated since December 2004; believes the SRA assurances that the new franchise would 'deliver greater value for money to taxpayers' and 'bring to an end any remaining uncertainty over the future shape of rail services in the North of England' have been cast in serious doubt; and urges the Government to use its powers under the Railways Bill to oppose any line closures, job cuts and bustitution proposals which may arise as a result from the review.

This motion has been signed by a total of 49 MPs.
