Prime Minister defends DfT over Southern

Prime Minister Theresa May said the Government was “not sitting on its heels” over Southern Railway’s poor performance.

In her first comments on the subject since becoming PM, May told BBC South Today: “Money has been made available to deal with some of the issues that have been causing delays on Southern Rail.”

She was referring to a £20 million fund to improve performance, much of which will go to Network Rail to fix infrastructure and signalling failings.
