Allow a direct rail link between Shropshire and London.

      This has been done previously and never been susidised well by government. Look at Wrexham and Shropshire that suffered. Branson I know could do this if the government went so bloody minded

      For the past 7 years have travelled weekly to London to look after grandchildren, this would decrease my travelling time and make the frequent journeys when bringing the 2 grandchildren back to Shropshire more enjoyable.

      Without this link Shrewsbury becomes isolated. Direct access is a necessity for business, commuting, and to keep young people in touch with the history of our Capital City.
