Staffing At Railway Stations Run By South-West Trains

EDM number 1841 in 2007-08, proposed by Norman Baker on 19/06/2008.
Categorised under the topic of Railways.

That this House notes with dismay and concern the intention by South West Trains to cut ticket office staff at 114 stations and to axe 118 posts; considers that this will lessen the attractiveness of rail as a travel option for those who use these stations; believes the public is more comfortable with staffed stations; is concerned that ticket machines will not always provide the lowest fare possible for each journey; and urges South West Trains not to proceed with the planned cuts.

This motion has been signed by a total of 23 MPs.
