Motion text

That this House regrets that carbon emissions from transport are expected to rise by at least 10 per cent. between 2000 and 2010, undermining reductions in carbon emissions in other sectors; notes that the average person travelling by rail generates around half the carbon dioxide emissions of the average person travelling by car; notes with concern recent suggestions by the Department for Transport in Cross Country franchise consultation that trains previously travelling directly from stations between Warrington and Glasgow to the South and South West should all terminate at Birmingham; believes that such suggestions will inconvenience passengers, leading many to drive instead of taking the train; and calls on the Department for Transport to ensure that passengers are put first in any changes to the rail network.
