Stourbridge MP vetoed brake on rapidly rising rail fares

Stourbridge MP Margot James voted against attempts to stop rail fares rising faster and gave her backing to the introduction of even higher ‘super-peak’ fares.

While representing the town in Parliament, the MP rejected a bid to cap annual rail fair increases at 1 per cent above inflation.

After a fresh challenge to the Government’s policy on ticket increases, she renewed her opposition to fare-capping. She also helped defeat a proposed ban on the mooted introduction of a new premium-price category of ticket for super-peak trains.
