STEPHEN LLOYD MP: A break in the Southern Rail impasse?

I have often told people who ask me that the key to being an MP was not that we have a lot of power - we don’t - but we have ‘access’ to power and if you know how to use the access, you can move mountains.

STEPHEN LLOYD MP: Busy week with Southern Rail and Brexit

A very active few days in Parliament this week. I gave a speech in Westminster on Tuesday asking, amongst other things, why the Secretary of State for Transport, Chris Grayling MP, and the Department for Transport (DfT) had consistently refused to meet both the RMT and ASLEF trade unions together and with no pre-conditions, to try and negotiate a resolution over the ongoing rail dispute, which is causing our local economy so much damage? Not forgetting also the appalling frustration and inconvenience experienced by many rail users.

I had a spell a year or so ago of being the Diocesan Emergency Response Officer and it was with horror that I heard about the awful tragedy known as Grenfell Tower. The human tragedy is colossal and it was encouraging to see the way that people rallied round to give practical help for the refugees from the fire. It was good to hear that local churches were in the forefront of extending a hand of compassion.
