Last month my Right hon. Friend Mark Harper MP, Secretary of State for Transport, delivered his vision for rail and set out his plans to modernise the rail industry and progress vital reforms to ensure the railways are fit for purpose.

He confirmed his ambition for a customer-focussed, commercially led industry, with the creation of Great British Railways as the new guiding mind for the sector.
