GTR interim timetable causing school chaos

As a direct consequence of the third emergency timetable, which came in on Sunday, schools in East Worthing have had to bring forward the closing of their day by an hour because there are no longer any trains for their pupils.

The punctuality rate will indeed improve, because with 100% of those trains no longer running, they are 100% punctual.

I asked the Minister what exactly it will take from the Glaister review—in addition to what thousands of our constituents tell us every single day about this shambles—to get this franchise removed once and for all, and as soon as possible.

I also asked what it will take to get a proper compensation scheme that properly reflects the daily agony that our constituents are going through.
