Covid-19: Welsh Conservatives welcome ‘Rail to Refuge’ scheme for people fleeing domestic abuse.

Welsh Conservatives have welcomed the news today (April 9) from the Rail Delivery Group (RDG) that free rail travel will be offered to people fleeing domestic abuse during the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic.
