Railways Bill — 6 Dec 2004 at 21:32

The Aye-voters failed to change the motion for debate to read:
This House declines to give a Second Reading to the Railways Bill because it increases the extent to which politicians and civil servants interfere in the running of the railways; gives the Mayor of London power over train services which begin or end beyond the boundaries of the Greater London Authority; perpetuates instability in the rail industry with regard to franchising; fails to encourage additional private investment; offers nothing to improve conditions for passengers and the travelling public; and exposes the Government's continuing disarray over the strategic direction of the industry.
which would have killed the Railways Bill had they succeeded. This Bill is the legislative part of the Government White Paper, "The Future of Rail".

The Bill now passes to Standing Committee A, where it is reviewed. Its recommended changes are then brought back to the House before the Third Reading debate after which the Bill is sent to the House of Lords before it passes into law.
