Rail fare rises above inflation must stop

Rail fare rises above inflation must stop

Together with my colleagues in the Labour Group, I have urged Boris Johnson not to raise TfL fares above the rate of inflation.

National rail operating companies announced recently that rail fares across the country will rise above the rate of inflation. Two of these companies, Greater Anglia and First Capital Connect, serve people who live in my constituency. Fares have already risen too much since Boris came to power in 2008, and it is vital that the Mayor does not follow suit with the national companies at a time when Londoners are already struggling with pay freezes and high inflation rates.
