Hull MP attacks unfair Tory transport funding

Hull North MP Diana Johnson today (25 January) confronted the Government with figures showing London getting five times as much transport investment per head as Yorkshire and the Humber over the next four years.
Speaking in the House of Commons, Diana Johnson MP said: "I am sure that the Leader of the House knows that this week the Institute for Public Policy Research North published a full analysis of transport investment in the next four years. 
"It shows that London will receive five times per head more than what Yorkshire and Humber will receive. With Crossrail 2 already so far advanced, there is nothing that can be done by Transport for the North, in its advisory capacity, to change that underfunding over the next few years. 
"May we have a statement from the Transport Secretary about exactly what he has got against the north? Rather than denying the underfunding, he should address it."
