At Last! Victory for our Rail Fare Campaign

MPs Mark Reckless and Tracey Crouch in ChathamMark Reckless, MP for Rochester and Strood, has welcomed the announcement by the Prime Minister earlier today that rail fare increases for 2013 are to be capped at RPI+1%.

Hailing this major victory for hard-pressed commuters, Mark Reckless said:

At last after years of campaigning, particularly with Tracey Crouch MP, both in public and equally importantly by lobbying ministers in private, we have ended Labour’s disgraceful policy of increasing Southeastern rail fares by 3% over inflation annually.

By exposing the effect it had when Labour used our commuters as guinea pigs for RPI +3% we have succeeded in protecting commuters nationally.

I would like to thank Radio 4 for the support which they gave me with the campaign, including coming to Grain at 6am and then Strood to meet commuters getting the coach to London because they could not afford the train.

A victory for long-suffering Southeastern commuters with whom I will now work to stop even 1% above inflation increases as soon as we possibly can.

    Hi – can I ask advice on how to get the child age raised on trains

  2. Snoring may also be caused due to a deviated septum. Thiis is hardly identified for the widesprad
    public. In our nasal cavity there’s a thin tissue wall which separates our nostrils and when this wall just isn’t aligneed between our nostrils evenly, it truly is
    referred to aas a deviated septum.Deviated septum snoring can be cured through nasal strips.

    Nasal sttrips are applied above thhe nose and they reduce the aiir flow resistance.
    They generate the suitable passage for breathing and thereby support in cubing snoring.
    The last alternative left wold be to undergo surgery.
    This may possibly sound difficult but luckily 98% folks
    suffering from this dilemma can find a cure in nasal strips.
