MP Louise Ellman: Rail fares 'too costly for many'

The government should rule out using peak-time train fare rises to manage passenger numbers, MPs have said.

A Commons Transport committee report said this "would for the most part be a tax on commuters who have no effective choice over how or when they travel".

Committee chair Louise Ellman MP, said the government must avoid fare rises as "for many people it is now becoming too expensive to travel by rail".
