Southern strike action

Absolutely appalled at the continuing problems on the Southern service caused by strike action and the ongoing failure from Govia to run a reliable service. These strikes are completely unjustified and will cause misery to thousands of my constituents who are rightly frustrated.

I have today called for an urgent meeting with local MPs to meet with Chris Gibb, who was appointed in September to help find solutions to the ongoing problems on the line.

I feel it is important that Chris sees first-hand the views of my constituents and will therefore be handing him a selection of correspondence. If you would like to share how Southern is affecting you, please email me sam@samgyimah.com
