That this House is concerned by the recommendation in the report by Sir Roy McNulty on the future of the rail industry, that nearly 1,000 station ticket offices should have their staff removed or reduced; notes that this figure amounts to approximately 40 per cent. of ticket offices in England and Wales; further notes that passenger groups and others have expressed alarm that if enacted stations would become dangerous, unwelcoming and inaccessible places; believes that rail passengers deserve, and are entitled to, safe, staffed stations; and therefore calls on the Secretary of State for Transport to reject these proposals.
