    Arriva Trains

    The Echo rang early this morning about the Assembly's Passenger Services Committee, to which I have been appointed. They have slightly misquoted me at one point in their article.

    I normally drive between the Rhondda and the National Assembly. But I have travelled on Arriva, and what I actually said - in response to a question about the refusal of their Managing Director to travel at on his trains at peak times - was 'I have travelled on his trains at peak times, so why won't he?'. The Echo has me saying of Arriva Trains 'I have to travel on his trains, so why won't he?'. Not quite the same, but there you go. I have asked people to email me with their questions for Arriva in advance of Wednesday's Committee Meeting.

    Arriva have now emailed me to say that Graeme Bunker will now be attending the committee meeting, which is contrary to what the Echo told me this morning.
