Labour pledge over railway ownership


Scottish Labour will renew calls for the railways to be taken back into public hands with a day of action.

Party leader Richard Leonard will join activists outside Glasgow Central station to make the case for ending private sector ownership.

The party will argue that public transport as a public service will prioritise reliabilit­y, affordabil­ity and punctualit­y over profit.

Mr Leonard claims that across Europe public sectorrun trains are better than the current Scotrail service.
