We must leave the EU to renationalise rail | Letters
John Draper responds to Caroline Lucas on Brexit

Caroline Lucas of the Green party tells Sky News she wants to renationalise the railways. She also wants Britain to stay in the EU (Letters, 25 April). Her problem is that from 2019 all new railway franchises in member states must by law be open to competitive tender (the “Fourth railway package” ratified by the European parliament last December). The only route to nationalising Britain’s railways is to leave the EU, including the single market.
