FROM RMT PRESS OFFICE

General Secretary Mick Cash said:

"This fit up by the Government gives First Group a chance to cherry-pick open access services on the East Coast in the name of profit while the public sector option is ignored yet again.

"The public sector was thrown off the East Coast despite delivering both financially and in service terms and now we have two private companies with the green light to whack up fares and milk this inter-city service for every penny they can get.

"This wild west, bandit capitalism on Britain's railways does nothing to tackle the backlog of essential investment and maintenance and does everything to line the pockets of the speculators. "
