I've been handed emails showing that Ministers and DfT officials were warned about Northern rail chaos 2 years ago. They show utter contempt for Northern passengers. #PMQs
DfT officials describe key routes as 'not really valued' and discuss giving a "sop" to campaigners.
They admit key Northern routes will be axed as early as 2015...
...but Ministers continued to assure MPs those routes will be saved.
DfT officials discuss spreading false information to deflect public attention from route closures.
Chris Grayling says he will learn the lessons. He must explain what he knew and when. All emails must be realised.
