Speaking ahead of the meeting, West Yorkshire Mayor Tracy Brabin said:
“Enough is enough – the Transport Secretary has promised to get a grip on this crisis, and we welcome that. But the people of the North needs more than warm words – we need a concrete plan that will get our rail network back on track.
“This chaos is having a devastating impact on the Northern economy and our attempts to rebuild from the pandemic, while we try and support our communities against the cost-of-living crisis with record levels of inflation.
“The Secretary of State is the person who can step in and has a fresh opportunity to help solve the problem, and that's exactly what we'll be telling him today.”
