RMT Press Office:

RMT on news that transport secretary Chris Grayling has flown to Qatar on day of biggest rail fare increase in five years

General Secretary Mick Cash said;

"Chris Grayling knew that the fares story would be top of the news agenda today but instead of being available to defend his Governments great rail rip-off he booked himself a winter escape to the Qatari sunshine.

"While millions of passengers are taking a financial hit as they battle their way back to work in the cold and the rain‎ today they will draw their own conclusions from the Transport Secretaries decision to book himself a trip to the desert rather than face the music."
