RMT Press Office:
RAIL UNION RMT on new evidence today that essential upgrade and renewal work is being cancelled due to government cuts.
General Secretary Mick Cash said;
"All this Government's talk of rail investment is just jam tomorrow when in reality important upgrade and renewal work across the UK is being shelved and scrapped due to on-going austerity.
"If overseas rail companies weren't being given the green light to milk Britain's passengers of hundreds of millions of pounds a year we would have the funds to build a railway fit for the future.
"The only solution is public ownership."
