Jason McCartney MP
Hello, I'm Jason McCartney, Member of Parliament for Colne Valley and I'm here at Marsden railway station this morning which is on the TransPennine route which is going to get millions of pounds of investment on the TransPennine Rail Route, thanks to the integrated rail plan.
But I just want to talk about an exciting announcement that has come out today from Grant Shapps MP, the Transport Secretary - the competition to be the new home for Great British Railways, has been launched today and what I want to say is, I want our area, Kirklees, Huddersfield, to bid to be the new home for Great British Railways.
Let's have the headquarters here in our area on this TransPennine route, so come on Kirklees, let's get a bid in.
I will work with you and let's make Huddersfield, the TransPennine route, the headquarters for the new Great British Railways.
