Maria Eagle MP, Labour’s Shadow Transport Secretary, responding to the news that four rail companies are suing the Government over the costs of the rail franchising fiasco, said:

“The decision by the rail companies to sue over the franchising fiasco is an absolute catastrophe for this Government and will mean more taxpayers’ money going down the drain.

“As a result of the franchising failure the taxpayer could now end up forking out over £100million and it’s time that David Cameron and his Ministers took responsibility for this shambles instead of continuing to hide behind civil servants.”
