Breaking Out

David With His Annual Report
David With His Annual Report

Some interesting conversations in Marchwood today, whilst going out and about to deliver my Annual Report.

A lot of people expressing unhappiness with bus services.

It remains expensive and not nearly so frequent as it used to be.

Conservatives always argued that competition would provide the best possible bus services both in terms of quality and value.

The experience has been rather different.

Most bus companies have been driven out of business by larger operators who then service an area from a monopoly position with “profit” uppermost in their mind, rather than providing a service to the public.

Sadly, my ability to influence bus companies to provide even basic services is greatly diminished now that Hampshire County Conservatives have virtually removed all bus subsidies.

There are now parts of the New Forest that have no services at all.
