Renationalisation Of The Railways

EDM number 951 in 2004-05, proposed by Adam Price on 17/03/2005.

That this House congratulates the decision of 30 members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport Union to march over 400 miles between Scotland and London to campaign for the renationalisation of the railways; notes that a clear majority in various opinion polls favour a policy of renationalisation; further notes that the current Government is spending up to three times more in subsidy than the sums received by the old British Rail; and believes that public money invested in rail transport should be invested in the network and not pocketed by shareholders.

This motion has been signed by a total of 22 MPs.
