McLoughlin: room for Pacers?

“There may be places where a Pacer can provide a service,” Secretary of State for Transport Patrick McLoughlin said on January 14, as he set out the transport priorities for a Conservative government if his party is re-elected in May.

McLoughlin said that Pacers had “had their day”, but would not commit to their wholesale replacement, suggesting that the forthcoming Invitation To Tender would clarify what would be expected of the next Northern franchise.

    Does the Secretary of State for Transport use them every day to get to work? Thought not!

      Probably not but some of his constituents do and they're not happy.
