  • 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
