How many more reviews, inquiries, investigations, statements and urgent questions will it take before GTR is at last stripped of its franchise

During a recent statement on the Terms of Reference of the forthcoming Rail Review, I asked the Secretary of State about the Glaister review, which will be looking into the timetable debacle.

The interim Glaister report has revealed unmitigated incompetence from all parties involved—GTR, Network Rail and, I am afraid, the Department for Transport.

I asked him: "how many more reviews, inquiries, investigations, statements and urgent questions will it take before GTR is at last stripped of its franchise, as all my constituents and those well beyond my constituency actually want?"
