Rail Fares: Cheltenham and London

The following is an extract from the Adjournment debate on Rail Fares: Cheltenham and London, on 19 December 2018.

Cheltenham Spa is a fantastic place; I know it very well, actually. It has regular services to and from Birmingham, Bristol and London, with services operated by Great Western Railway and CrossCountry. To support improvements to the amenities of the station itself, a masterplan for the station has been promoted, with the local authority playing a leading role. My hon. Friend mentioned increased car parking. Additional car parking is a key element within the planned package of improvements, with a new multi-storey car park planned.

Letter of correction from the Under-Secretary of State for Transport, the hon. Member for Harrogate and Knaresborough (Andrew Jones).

An error has been identified in the speech I gave during the debate on Rail Fares: Cheltenham and London in response to my hon. Friend the Member for Cheltenham (Alex Chalk).

The correct statement should have been:
