“on cost and on merit: it will not achieve its stated objectives.”-[Official Report, 15 September 2015; Vol. 599, c. 1006.]
“a second-class option for the North”
“Now all we want for Christmas, is our trains back;
And no more empty election yackity yack.”
“Now that the Prime Minister knows where Fleetwood is, will he finally say when the railway connection will be reinstated to Poulton and the rest of the country?”
“fall at the first hurdle”

“Harry, 11, was standing squashed with his Dad. He started to go pale and felt sick. He then suddenly collapsed, went limp, eyes rolled back and he passed out. We pulled the emergency stop button. After about a minute, he came round, but was weak, limp and only just responding. There was no space for him to lie down”-
“no space for me to even get to him. No space for the conductor to get to him to see if he needed medical help. The windows were closed. It was hot, airless, and people were packed to absolute capacity. What does it take for the train companies to understand that packing trains full to above safe capacity is a fatality waiting to happen. The conductors were encouraging people to get on an already dangerously full train.”
“driving decline in our railways”.
“The Government recognise the importance of improving rail connectivity to Bradford-for the local community, for passengers and for the regeneration opportunities that it could bring.”-[Official Report, 30 June 2021; Vol. 698, c. 72WH.]
“both are needed and both will be built as quickly and as cost-effectively as possible.”-[Official Report, 11 February 2020; Vol. 671, c. 713.]
