Harriett Baldwin calls on Prime Minister to back inspection of West Midlands Trains

9th January 2020

Harriett Baldwin raises the recent woeful performance of West Midlands Trains at Prime Minister’s Questions and calls for a Secretary of State for Transport inspection if there is no improvement by the end of January.

Harriett Baldwin (West Worcestershire) (Con)

In recent months, the performance of West Midlands Trains for my constituents and for constituents across the region has been absolutely woeful. Does the Prime Minister agree with Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands, that if it does not shape up by the end of January, it too should have an inspection by the Secretary of State for Transport and potentially have its franchise taken away?

The Prime Minister

The House will have heard what I had to say to the hon. Member for Makerfield (Yvonne Fovargue) about the performance of various franchise holders across our rail network. We are looking at the whole issue and the bell is tolling for West Midlands rail, if I hear my hon. Friend correctly.
