The next Conservative Government will freeze regulated rail fares in real terms

Karl McCartney JP, Lincoln’s Conservative Candidate for the General Election, has said that the next Conservative Government will freeze regulated rail fares in real terms for the whole of the next Parliament.

 

The cost of commuting is one of the biggest household bills that hardworking families face and it is something the Conservatives are determined to bear down on by limiting fare rises.

 

Karl McCartney JP, said: “It shouldn’t just be taken for granted that people in Lincoln and across the Country who get up early and come home late, spend a large amount of the money they earn travelling to and from work.

 

“Because of the difficult decisions that we have taken to repair the economy, Conservatives in Government have been able to freeze regulated fare rises in real terms for the past two years. 

 

“If elected in May, we’d continue that freeze for the next five years.

 

“Only the Conservatives can offer families in Lincoln the additional financial security that this will bring. 

 

“Under Labour, commuters were hit with above inflation rises year after year. And if they got in again, the economic chaos they would cause would ensure it happened all over again.”
