Monday 07 January 2013
Network Rail has said it is ready to pay nearly £35m in train-travel expenses to its staff in 2011-13, around £1,000 per employee, as passengers suffer massive new year fare increases. Staff who worked for British Rail before privatisation 20 years ago had rail-pass perks safeguarded as part of the terms of the deal. Workers employed since then have limited free travel.

City bonuses are to fall in the coming remuneration round, according to PricewaterhouseCoopers.

PWC estimates that European banks will slash bonuses by up to 40 per cent.
