Greater Anglia Ticket Offices

EDM number 210 in 2017-19, proposed by Clive Lewis on 18/07/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Companies and Railways.

That this House is concerned at warnings from the rail unions that Greater Anglia trains wishes to close all but seven of its 64 ticket offices by the end of its franchise; is further concerned that ticket office closures will result in a worse, less accessible service, higher ticket prices, more dangerous stations and non-availability of tickets when ticket machines break down; is dismayed cuts are being considered when fares are going up and the profits from these cuts will go to Dutch State Railway who owns the franchise; and calls for assurances from Greater Anglia that it will not close ticket offices for the duration of its franchise.

This motion has been signed by a total of 11 MPs.
