East Coast Mainline

EDM number 920 in 2017-19, proposed by Ian Mearns on 07/02/2018.
Categorised under the topic of Railways.

That this House notes that Virgin-Stagecoach who operate East Coast mainline railway are in breach of financial covenants and will shortly be unable to continue to provide this service; further notes that this is the third time a private operator has failed to live up to its commitments on this service route; notes that in contrast previously, under public ownership, East Coast achieved record levels of passenger satisfaction; supports the RMT union's call for the jobs and conditions of rail workers affected to be fully protected and underwritten; and urges the Government immediately and permanently to take back into public ownership East Coast mainline, with the need for good customer service enshrined within its remit.

This motion has been signed by a total of 29 MPs.
