Jessica Morden

Labour MP for Newport East

Welsh Grand Committee


In this week's Welsh Grand Committee I called for improvements to woefully inadequate cross-border rail services.

Last week in the Commons chamber I highlighted chronic overcrowding on commuter services between Newport, Severn Tunnel Junction and Bristol in the face of further fares increases.

In a question to Welsh Secretary Alun Cairns, I said “If the Secretary of State is serious about improving cross-border connectivity between parts of my constituency and Bristol and beyond, will he get the Department for Transport to improve the cross-border services which take my constituents to work in Bristol and further afield, as they are woefully inadequate."
