Rail industry response to announcement of 'root and branch' review of rail

Paul Plummer, CEO of the Rail Delivery Group, who represent the rail industry, said:

“We are committed to changing and improving the railway. That’s why we have been calling for a review and why we launched a plan last year to deliver more for our customers, the economy, communities and our people. To help us achieve this, what’s needed is a wide-ranging review looking at every part of the railway and focussed on what works best for customers and taxpayers.

“While we continue to look at our own role in driving improvement, root and branch reform of the whole system can only be delivered with the help of government. This review is a once in a generation opportunity for the wide-ranging and independent thinking our railway needs and we stand ready to play our part to make sure it delivers big, bold, meaningful reform in the national interest.”
