Health and safety issues on overcrowded trains

Additional Information

Urgent attention required to overcrowding on trains.On a recent journey passengers were crammed in like sardines, no seats available, passengers standing all through the train, entry and exit areas blocked with passengers and luggage. How can companies over sell tickets? Big health and safety issues should an accident/incident occur.

I request that Ministers from the Department for Transport carry out actual checks on 'known' overcrowded train services ( a report has been produced on this issue), and examine at first hand health and safety practice.
I request the said Ministers assess health and safety procedures on a regular basis to ensure policies and procedures (set by the rail companies) are being adhered to.
