Simon Danczuk MP has called on David Cameron to apologise following the exchanges over rail fares at Prime Minister’s Questions today:

“David Cameron asserted today that Labour never had any intention of making the low fares policy permanent after 2010.

“That is flat wrong. Lord Adonis has made it clear today that it was his 'firm intention to continue the policy for subsequent years, and I was mystified when Philip Hammond, my successor, reinstated the fares flexibility'.

“David Cameron is telling a lie about Labour because he is embarrassed by his failure to stand up to the train companies. He is blushing red about the way Ed Miliband is standing up for passengers and the squeezed middle.

“David Cameron knows the truth and he should come back to the House, apologise and immediately correct the record.”
