General Secretary Mick Cash said;
"It is no surprise that the private rail companies are up in arms at sensible and popular plans confirmed today that would slam the brakes on two decades of profiteering and exploitation on Britain's railways.
"Since privatisation the British public have ended up paying the highest fares in Europe to travel on rammed out and unreliable services while billions of pounds have been siphoned off in company profits. That is why 70% of the British people support public ownership of the railways. "
