During Prime Ministers Questions, Boris Johnson has said that ‘the bell is tolling for West Midlands Trains’.
This comes in the House of Commons today after West Worcestershire MP Harriett Baldwin called the service “absolutely woeful”.
West Worcestershire MP Harriett Baldwin said:
“In recent months the performance of West Midlands rail for my constituents and for constituents across the region has been absolutely woeful.
“Will he agree with Andy Street, the West Midlands mayor, that if they do not shape up by the end of January they too should have an inspection by the Secretary of State for Transport and potentially have their franchise taken away?”
In reply to this, the Prime Minister said that the Government is looking at the performance of various franchise holders across the rail network.
