“How are people and businesses supposed to plan their day? Its critique, Devolving our Railways, estimated the area’s economy took a £38m hit and Mr Osborne said that “the Northern Powerhouse is crying out for more devolution”. Passengers are fed up with being passed from the proverbial pillar to post as they try to find out about journeys or how to get compensation, a culture that stems from the leaderless Department for Transport.
And this at a time when Mr Grayling, who admitted to MPs last week that he didn’t have the specialist knowledge to overrule officials on timetable changes, had promised that getting the North’s train services back on track was his number one priority. Though some incidents, like last Friday’s storms, are beyond the control of the railway authorities, the fragility of the network is a recurring theme as those trains taken out of service at the height of the timetable turmoil are reinstated. The hard-hitting report by the Northern Powerhouse Partnership, headed by George Osborne, the former Chancellor, put the shambles on the Trans Pennine Express and Northern franchises in a financial – and human – context.
For example, the law in Michigan permits a postviability abortion only if the woman’s life is endangered and laws in several other states ban abortion at a specific point in gestation.
Most recently, several states have enacted laws that ban abortion at 20 weeks’ postfertilization—well before viability—based on the spurious assertion that a fetus can feel pain at that point.
It was only when Mrs Toker signed up for an email alert service, and her inbox quickly became full, that she realised there were as many ‘reasons’ for non-existent trains as organisations running the railways, hence the call for the whole industry to take collective responsibility.
They included a ‘fault on signal system’; ‘operational incident’; ‘late running train in front’; ‘points failure’; ‘high winds forecast’; ‘speed restrictions because of high temperature’; ‘train crew delayed’; ‘line side equipment fault’ and a ‘power cut at a station’.
Most often, courts have voided the limitations because they do not contain a health exception; contain an unacceptably narrow health exception; or do not permit a physician to determine viability in each individual case, but rather rely on a rigid construct based on specific weeks of gestation or trimester.
