DfT fines Southern over failures

Thursday 13th July 2017

Mick Whelan, general secretary of ASLEF, the train drivers’ union, has spoken out after the Department for Transport fined the owners of Southern Railways £13.4 million for poor performance. Mick said: ‘What Chris Grayling takes with one hand he gives back with the other. The DfT has fined Southern £13m but it has also given Southern £13m to improve services. ‘So the lesser spotted Secretary of State for Transport, and the lesser spotted DfT, only take back what they have already given and the company – known to passengers who suffer from its mismanagement every day as Southern Fail – does not actually pay the price for failing to deliver. ‘There is still no end in sight to the problems of Southern. The DfT has failed, the Transport Secretary has failed, and Southern has failed.’
