Motion text

That this House believes that the 600 carriages required by the £16 billion Crossrail project should be built in the UK; welcomes recent confirmation from Transport for London and the Department for Transport that the Crossrail fleet will be wholly publicly-procured for £1 billion; supports the call for the publicly-financed Crossrail trains to be built at Bombardier in Derby which would guarantee 10,000 jobs in the East Midlands and in the national supply chain, as well as safeguarding the future of train building in the nation that gave railways to the world; is concerned that if Bombardier does not win the contract to manufacture Crossrail trains then the plant will close meaning the end of British train manufacturing; and urges the Mayor of London to support the campaign to buy trains made in Britain.
