Euro MP Alex Mayer has welcomed the resignation of Charles Horton, Chief Executive Officer of Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR).
GTR has been particularly hit by the recent rail timetable shake up with passengers facing sudden cancellations and numerous delays.
Ms Mayer said “I’m glad that Charles Horton has taken the honourable decision to resign following the new timetable debacle, in stark contrast to this Government where the Transport Secretary has refused to take responsibility.
“The Government should apologise for the consequences of the new timetable chaos and the botched privatisation experiment.”
“It is clear that this ideological system for running our trains has failed, only a Labour government will bring the railways back under public control where they belong.”
