Recent appearances

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Public Transport: Affordability 30 Jun 2016

    Rail fares rose by 0.7% last year thanks to this Government’s fares cap, meaning that rail fares rose by less than earnings for the first time since 2003. Outside London, deregulated bus fares rose by 1.8% last year, with the Government continuing to spend more than 1.2 billion a year through the bus service operators grant and concessionary fares to help keep fares affordable.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Public Transport: Affordability 30 Jun 2016

    There are already concessionary fares targeted exactly at that group. On the rail network too, there are now specific discount fares for jobseekers. Often this is a matter for local authorities to work on with their bus operators. The Bus Services Bill currently in Committee gives local authorities additional powers through a franchising mechanism, should they choose to use it.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Public Transport: Affordability 30 Jun 2016

    I can reassure the hon. Gentleman—it is a pleasure to see him on the Front Bench this morning. Those operators may have ownership structures involving foreign entities, as do many British companies, but any operator in the UK is a UK-based company, employing UK staff and headquartered in the UK, continuing to invest in a very successful rail and bus programme right across the country.
