The Tories want to see rail fail by scrapping electrification plans

20 July 2017

Responding to news that the Tory government are delaying electrification of rail lines, TSSA General Secretary, Manuel Cortes said: "The Tories commitment to Wales, the Midlands and the Pennines is skin deep.

'To cancel the electrification of the line from Cardiff to Swansea is an act of economic vandalism. Our railways and the people of Wales both deserve far better than this. Only a Labour government will ensure there is the investment needed to ensure no one or any part of Britain is left behind because of an inadequate public transport system."
