Cuts Watch #188: Rail Transport

10 Aug 2010, by in Cuts Watch

Employers’ organisation the British Chambers of Commerce has written to Vince Cable, warning him that cuts in rail investment could harm the recovery. The organisation’s Director, David Frost, said that businesses are worried that cuts in electrification or the delivery of new rolling stock could have effects throughout the economy. Mr Frost also said that his organisation was also worried about slow progress on the Northern Hub – half a billion pounds invested in improving stations and more frequent services in the North of England.
