On Tuesday, the results of the great British transport competition, sponsored by the TaxPayers Alliance, were presented at Parliament by Craig Tracey. The winning entries included 22 sensible railway schemes. I have to say that not all railway schemes are sensible, but the country is in desperate need of a sensible future for our railways. Will the Leader of the House make time for a full debate in the Chamber about those proposals and other railway investment to provide for our long-term transport needs?
