For every £4 of investment put into London and the south-east, the north gets £1—those are the Government’s own figures. The Northwich area in my constituency was promised two trains an hour to Manchester, but that has not been delivered by the failing Northern franchise. On tolls, there was a clear promise, as outlined by my hon. Friend Justin Madders, that a local discount scheme would be extended to Cheshire West, Chester and Warrington, but that promised has not been delivered. Will the Minister answer that point?
