22nd Jan 2020:

I was delighted to see that Harriett Baldwin MP secured a debate in Westminster Hall on 22 January on improvements to the North Cotswold Line. I chair the special Task Force which was established by the local authorities, local enterprise partnerships, the Department for Transport, and Great Western Railway to make the case for the investment needed to support a doubling the number of trains between Oxford and Worcester, and to run new services beyond Worcester. All the MPs on our route, and those representing constituencies in Herefordshire and north Worcestershire which will benefit from the train service improvements, are behind what we are doing in the task force and many spoke in Harriett’s debate.
