Lewisham East MP Heidi Alexander has condemned yet another blow to the area's commuters from Transport Secretary Chris Grayling. The Department of Transport has now vetoed plans for the company to add more rolling stock. A clearly angered Alexander responded, saying that. "This is a really disappointing response from the rail minister. When a cross party group pf MPs met with him before Christmas, he gave the strong impression that new carriages would be on their way soon."
