Commenting on ScotRail reaching a remedial agreement with the Scottish Government, Scottish Liberal Democrat transport spokesperson Mike Rumbles MSP said:
“Does the Transport Secretary think that long suffering rail customers have short memories?
“The previous Transport Secretary heralded his ‘improvement plan’ in January last year. Now we have the current Transport Secretary’s ‘remedial plan’. Has he any explanation as to why anyone should believe him that the Scottish Government's remedial plan will work when their improvement plan failed so miserably?
“The Scottish government should stop making excuses for ScotRail and terminate their contract at the first opportunity in April next year.”
