PMQs: Boris Johnson and Keir Starmer clash over rail strikes

There were roars from the Conservative benches as Sir Keir Starmer said “now we have got the biggest rail strikes in 30 years”.Sir Keir asked: “If he is genuine about preventing strikes, will the Prime Minister tell this House how many meetings he or his Transport Secretary have had with rail workers this week to actually stop a strike?”The Prime Minister replied: “This is the Government that loves the railways, that invests in the railways, £96 billion we are putting into the integrated railway plan.”Boris Johnson also claimed that 25 Labour MPs out on the picket line were “defying instruction” from Sir Keir, and suggested Labour was backing strikers not “strivers”.
