Green MP urges government to get rid of Govia Thameslink Railway after it wins permission to cancel 350 trains a day
Caroline Lucas, the Green MP, has called on the government to strip Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR) of its franchise after allowing it to introduce an emergency timetable for Southern rail that permits the cancellation of 350 trains a day.
The Rail, Maritime and Transport union said it was given the figures at a meeting with officials from GTR, which runs Southern.
