Fare rises - Cameron’s cost-of-living crisis continues - Mary Creagh

Mary Creagh MP, Labour’s Shadow Transport Secretary, commenting on the first day that the rail network will be back to a full number of commuters, with workers who took rest of last week off and schools and colleges returning for the first time since fares increased, said:

“David Cameron’s cost-of-living crisis continues as commuters returning to work today face fare rises of up to five per cent, while season tickets have gone up by twenty per cent under this Government, costing hard-working commuters hundreds of pounds.

“Over the last three years David Cameron has failed to stand up for working people, allowing train companies to hit passengers with inflation-busting fare rises of up to nine per cent.”

You're £1,600 a year worse off under David Cameron

Ed Miliband will:

  • Bring in a tough cap on rail fare rises on all routes
  • Freeze gas and electricity prices until 2017
  • Expand free childcare to 25 hours a week for working parents
  • Get at least 200,000 houses built a year

Join us to take Labour's message to commuters on Wednesday 8th January.
