That this House notes with concern the terms of the consultation on the future of cross country services from Scotland to the South of England, and vice versa; notes in particular that these are popular routes with elderly people, young families and other social travellers; further notes that the consultation envisages an end to direct services and that in the future people will be required therefore to change at Birmingham or Crewe; regards this as a retrograde step; and calls on the Government to ensure that the new franchise will allow direct services between Scotland and the South of England.
