In Government the Tories repeatedly argued for raising rail fares by well above inflation.
Lib Dems had to fight to keep rises to a minimum.
It is astonishing that the Conservatives would now turn around and claim they are going to freeze fares. They have shown no willingness to do so in the last five years and no one should believe them now.
Having fought to keep rises lower than Tory demands in this Government, Liberal Democrats will ensure that fares increase no faster than inflation over the course of the next Parliament.
