PMQs: Luke Pollard and Theresa May on Dawlish and Devon rail lines

A Devon MP asked the prime minister to help South West England keep its main train line open by unblocking a £300m upgrade plan, five years after part of it was washed in to the sea at Dawlish.

Luke Pollard claimed the Department for Transport was "sitting on" the plan.
