MP challenges Minister on East Coast Mainline services

As Virgin East Coast, which runs rail services on the East Coast Mainline, gets closer to collapse, I asked the Secretary of State for Transport why the public company East Coast was blocked by his department from bidding for the franchise.

When East Coast previously ran the rail services on this line, it operated an efficient and cost effective service, and so I pressed the Secretary of State to change the rules to allow public companies to bid for rail franchises in the future.

You can see me challenge the Secretary of State here:
