Petition - Freewheelers' Use of Bus Lanes: South Western Railway (1 Oct 2019)

Caroline Nokes: I think it is important to take the opportunity to press the Minister when I can. He makes the point that wi-fi is fitted—it is, but it simply does not work. It is complicated to log on to and it drops out frequently. Will he use all power to his elbow when discussing this with SWR? We know it is there, but make it better.

Petition - Freewheelers' Use of Bus Lanes: South Western Railway (1 Oct 2019)

Caroline Nokes: Three years!

Petition - Freewheelers' Use of Bus Lanes: South Western Railway (1 Oct 2019)

Caroline Nokes: I thank my right hon. Friend for her comments. She says that high fares are acceptable only if there is a reasonable service. I received two comments from Guildford constituents on Twitter when they heard that this debate was occurring. One of them, Philippa, tells me that 2% of her trains this year have been both on time and in the correct formation. Scott, who travels into Waterloo, says...

Petition - Freewheelers' Use of Bus Lanes: South Western Railway (1 Oct 2019)

Caroline Nokes: I thank the Speaker for having granted this debate. I recognise that the performance of South Western Railway is not a new subject, rehearsed as it was in this Chamber by the right hon. Member for Twickenham (Sir Vince Cable) less than a year ago and as it has been repeatedly in general debates touching on rail issues. For those of us unfortunate enough to be served by the franchise, it is a...

Petition - Freewheelers' Use of Bus Lanes: South Western Railway (1 Oct 2019)

Caroline Nokes: I do agree with the hon. Gentleman, who has highlighted one of the many problems, which is the lack of information. We all understand that problems on the network can cause trains to be delayed, but in the 21st century providing information in advance can enable passengers to work out a different route. Sometimes such information is simply not forthcoming. I well recall being at Southampton...

Petition - Freewheelers' Use of Bus Lanes: South Western Railway (1 Oct 2019)

Caroline Nokes: I thank the hon. Lady for making that point. It may try her patience, but I will come on to the issue of disabled passengers at the end of my remarks. A constituent of mine has been in touch about a terrible experience he had on a train from London Waterloo to Basingstoke. As a disabled passenger, he was trapped on the train and unable to make alternative arrangements, and he had a...

Petition - Freewheelers' Use of Bus Lanes: South Western Railway (1 Oct 2019)

Caroline Nokes: My hon. Friend makes a valid point. As my constituents pass through places such as Wimbledon, they see that no one is able to get on those trains. As one constituent put it to me, the only change he has noticed in SWR’s service is a further deterioration, from a very low base: short formations, broken trains and stations being skipped, and delays continue unabated. As he correctly points...

Prime Minister's Role in Creating a Safe Environment (26 Sep 2019)

Caroline Nokes: I fear I might be repetitive because last night I asked my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister whether it was not just about language but about tone. I commend my hon. Friend the Minister for his tone today, but how would he suggest that I should respond to those in the beautiful marketplace of Romsey who three Saturdays ago told me I was a traitor who deserved to be shot, when the language...

Prime Minister's Update (25 Sep 2019)

Caroline Nokes: What matters in this place is not just language, but tone. Earlier my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister spoke of political cowardice; I wish to speak to him of political bravery. Politics is the art of the possible. I genuinely believe it is possible for him to get a new deal; further, I believe it is possible for it to pass this House. But it would be politically brave not simply to reach...
