Today at First Minister’s Questions I asked Nicola Sturgeon what her government is going to do in light of news that a third of all rail routes in Scotland have services that are late more often than they are on time.

Since 2011, the Scottish Government’s cap on rush hour fares has increased by over 23 per cent, while average weekly earnings have increased by only 6 per cent.

Abellio, meanwhile, has made £1million-a-month profit from the franchise.

Those who travel by train to their work every day are paying more for a shocking service. Scottish commuters are fed up with the SNP’s excuses and want their rail services back on track.
