CLASS briefing on publicly-owned rail

The Centre for Labour and Social Studies (CLASS) has produced a short, informative briefing on publicly-owned railways, taking into account some recent political announcements on rail, including the Conservative Party’s pledge on rail fares, and explores the benefits of public ownership.

The briefing also follows previous polling commissioned by CLASS, which found that bringing the railways back into public ownership would be supported by two thirds of the British people.

The briefing can be viewed and downloaded here.
