Dire winter rail services

Greg met the Managing Director of Southeastern, Charles Horton, to discuss the severe weather last month which caused terrible disruption to rail services, and the recent outrageous increase in fares.

Commenting on the increase in rail fares, Greg said:

"The fare increase of 11.8% suffered by my constituents is appalling. It is grossly unfair to expect people here to pay such a swingeing increase – Southeastern should have allocated the increase fairly across all areas."
