Motion text

That this House is deeply concerned at continued reports that proposals are being discussed to scrap direct London King's Cross to Glasgow rail services; believes that there are significant social, environmental and economic benefits to retaining this service and that this new publicly-owned railway should be exploring ways to increase rather than cut this service; and calls on the Government to end the uncertainty for passengers, rail workers and businesses and to confirm without delay that there will continue to be regular direct services between London and Glasgow on the East Coast Main Line.
