Confidence in Chris Grayling MP as Secretary of State for Transport — 19 Jun 2018 at 15:56
The majority of MPs voted to express confidence in Chris Grayling MP as Secretary of State for Transport.
The motion rejected by the majority of MPs in this vote was:
- That this House
- has no confidence in the Secretary of State for Transport, the Rt Hon Member for Epsom and Ewell;
- notes the failed implementation of the May rail timetables which has left thousands of commuters without services and has drastically affected their everyday lives;
- believes Northern and Govia Thameslink Railway should have their franchises terminated; and
- regrets that the Secretary of State for Transport has failed to strategically manage and oversee the UK railway and take responsibility for his role in the crisis on England’s railways, whilst officials at other organisations have resigned and forgone bonuses.
