I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time.

The merits of the Bill are self-evident and overwhelming, and I ask the House to support it.

The Bill rejects the appearance and judgment of public transport operators in Britain. It frustrates local authorities that seek to develop good transport services. It creates a major problem for those people who run railway pension schemes. It throws an efficient and properly run public sector of the freight transport industry to the private sector. It will win some cheers at the Tory Party conference, but those cheers will be purchased at a high price for the public service operators and the

people who are served by them. I therefore ask my hon. Friends to vote against the Bill.

Question put, That the Bill be now read the Third time:

The House divided: Ayes 272, Noes 207.
