Answer for MORI poll - national rail system

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The poll I commissioned from MORI was designed to inform the development of my draft transport strategy. The strategy covers all modes of transport, including national rail, so it was appropriate for me to ask questions about national rail. Problems afflicting national rail have a significant impact on London and Londoners, so it was important to discuss these highly topical issues.
