Motion text

That this House is concerned that the proposals to close ticket offices on the railway will worsen passenger services through the loss of thousands of frontline workers from ticket offices; is deeply concerned that the proposal to close the ticket office in Whitechapel London Underground station during the process of rebuilding the station for Crossrail breaks the principle of a staffed ticket office at each London Underground station; is dismayed at the prospect of the local community and users of the busy local market and hospital being denied access to a staffed ticket office; is further concerned that the closure may become permanent in an attempt to shut ticket offices one by one; believes that all railway stations and London Underground stations should be fully staffed to ensure safety and accessibility for all passengers; and opposes the closure of any ticket offices even on a temporary basis.
