Jim McMahon – 2020 Comments on Government’s Rail Fare Increases

The comments made by Jim McMahon, the Shadow Secretary of State for Transport, on 16 December 2020.

By allowing yet another fare hike, the government will make rail travel unaffordable for many and discourage people from getting back on to the network when restrictions ease.

The government’s failure means Britain is facing the worst recession of any major economy. This will be yet another kick in the teeth for families struggling to get by.
