Jeremy Quin: Queen's Speech debate contribution

I managed to speak last week in the "Queens Speech" debate on the day focussing on economics. After referencing comments made earlier in the debate, which is a courtesy to earlier speakers, I welcomed various Government measures from my perspective as a member of the financial inclusion commission. Lastly but most importantly I put concerns we have in Horsham into the national context: the requirement for a more reliable train service, getting expansion underway at Heathrow (taking those who would be impacted by Gatwick out of their misery) and welcoming the planned introduction of Fair Funding for our local schools.

Horsham MP slams Southern Rail Performance in Westminster Debate

Local MP Jeremy Quin secured a “Westminster Hall” debate in the House of Commons on Wednesday (16th March) on the performance of Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR) and Network Rail. Mr Quin led the 90 minute debate which was well attended by local MPs including Henry Smith, Sir Nicholas Soames and Nick Herbert.  They joined in setting out the massive and ongoing issues faced by local rail passengers.  Rail Minister Claire Perry attended the entirety of the debate and spoke at its conclusion.
