Early Day Motion: restore the operational subsidy for London Underground

Support the RMT campaign to restore the operational subsidy for London Underground

The London Underground is essential to our communities, economy and environment and all the staff who work on the Tube play a vital role in keeping the network running. Shockingly the Government has withdrawn operational subsidy for Transport for London meaning that London Underground is the only Metro of its kind in the world that does not receive such subsidy.
