Former Prime Minister Theresa May has been invited to join Great Western Railway’s independent stakeholder advisory board. The post is unpaid and does not include free travel.
May, who has been MP for Maidenhead for 25 years and is a regular rail user, fills a vacancy on the 12-strong panel that is chaired by Lord Faulkner of Worcester. It has been operating since 2015 and includes representatives from all GWR routes covering the fields of business, academia, voluntary sector, and Parliament.
“I know how important reliable rail services are for my constituents and others across the Thames Valley, and welcome an opportunity to help deliver for our area,” she said.
