Welcoming Labour's rail campaign day today, RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said:
“The Labour commitment to British state ownership of our railways will end the debacle of three quarters of our railways being foreign-owned and UK passengers being ripped off with the profits shipped abroad to support other country’s railways.
“Fair fares, proper investment, a safely staffed and accessible railway and ending the expansion of driver only trains shows Labour is on the side of passengers while the Tories do the bidding of the fat cat rail companies.”
