Passengers 'paying fair fares for comfortable commuting'

Rail Minister Claire Perry said she sympathises with passengers who have had to contend with "inflation-busting fare rises almost every year over the last decade" but insisted the Government was committed to "fair fares".

– Claire Perry, rail minister
