Motion text

That this House notes that since November 2003, passenger services have been operated in the public sector on South Eastern trains; also notes that since that time punctuality figures have improved in every quarter; further notes that in the Network Rail areas where maintenance contracts were first brought 'in-house' delays caused by infrastructure failures have fallen between 36 per cent. and 50 per cent.; welcomes these developments alongside the growing support for public ownership of the rail network; and believes that the Government should now make a commitment to take the railway franchises back into public hands as they fall due.
