New report – Driver operated doors declared SAFE

A new report from the Office of Rail and Road has found that Driver Only Operated doors are safe to use on Southern Rail services. The report has also made some suggestions for further improvement, which the operator has stated that it will look to implement (you can read the report here)

This shows the Southern strikes are completely unjustified, and why my proposed legislation to limit strikes on critical infrastructure is needed. I have tabled a 10 minute rule bill to do this, which I will be introducing on January 24th.
