Rail union RMT responds to Chris Grayling on BBC this morning

RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said;

"We have seen no details of this so-called rail plan but it appears that Chris Graylings answer to the disaster of rail privatisation is yet more privatisation with the creation of a series of local versions of the failed and deadly Railtrack infra structure model. From what we have heard this lethal plan could well spell the end for Network Rail as a national, strategic and publicly owned body.

" The planned breaking up of Great Western and GTR is a massive admission of failure by the Government but still they rule out the highly popular option of public ownership. That is a scandal.

"RMT will fight any plans for more privatisation and fragmentation on Britain's railways and will step up the campaign for public ownership and control."

Ends

Note:

RMT will make further comment when we see the detail of the Government proposals.
