A future Labour Government would nationalise the railways it has been agreed at their annual party conference in Brighton. The franchises would be brought back under public control as they expire so a third of the franchises would be nationalised between 2020 and 2025.

The national executive confirmed that:

“Conference opposes another round of unneeded, unwanted and ill-thought-through privatisation”.
