Following the announcement from Abellio Daniel Zeichner MP said: “I'm pleased we finally have some certainty about what will happen on the Cambridge-Liverpool Street line, after this much delayed announcement. 

I would have preferred that the Government used the delay for some radical thinking like having a directly operated service. Of course it's ironic instead the Tories are heralding the announcement that our railways will be run by a Dutch government-owned train operator for next decade.

Passengers won't expect any excuses from Abellio now the company has the benefits of continuity and can plan for the long term.

I will be making sure they keep to their promises on new trains and no more delays to Cambridge North. It's also time to promise long suffering commuters no more unfair price hikes.”

New East Anglia franchise announced – Cambridge MP responds

Following the announcement from Abellio Daniel Zeichner MP said: “I'm pleased we finally have some certainty about what will happen on the Cambridge-Liverpool Street line, after this much delayed announcement. 

Daniel Zeichner MP recently made a b-line for the Botantic Gardens.

Mr Zeichner who is vice president of the Cambridgeshire bee keepers association and a species champion for the Ruderal bumblebee will join Gill Perkins, CEO of the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, at the bee border, as they spot bees and discuss the future of our pollinating friends after the EU referendum. 

Research from the University of Bern in Switzerland has found that two neonicotinoid pesticides – clothianidin and thiamethoxam – may damage bee fertility by acting as contraceptives. The study also showed neonicotinoids cut bees' lifespan by one-third.

The bee friendly EU banned neonicotinoids despite protests from the Conservative Government. But following the vote to leave the EU Daniel Zeichner MP is concerned.

Mr Zeichner said: "When I asked the Secretary of State for Environment whether the Government would continue to adhere to the European Commission ban on the use of neonicotinoid pesticides after the UK leaves the EU, I didn't get a straight answer." 

He continued “I'm quite sure people who voted for Brexit, didn't cast their vote, because they were anti-bees. As EU Directives and Regulations stop applying to the UK the Government must ensure new arrangements are put in place to safeguard our precious natural heritage. Bees are essential for pollinating our crops - we can’t afford to gamble with their future."

Responding to news that Cambridge technology giant ARM is set to be acquired by Japan's Softbank, Cambridge MP Daniel Zeichner says that we need strong guarantees that the assurances given will be honoured: "Within weeks of the European referendum we are seeing the sale of the jewel in the UK tech crown, Cambridge's greatest modern success story.

Analysts will debate the impact on ARM, but there can be no doubt that Britain is losing control of one of our most innovative and successful companies.

The promises and assurances are bold, but the power to decide moves elsewhere, and the Government needs to consider how these promises can be guaranteed.

There has been a chill running through Cambridge since June 23, and this news only reinforces the sense that the country has taken the wrong turn."
