In response to the report Rosie said:
“I very much welcome the Association of Train Operating Companies report as it shows further strengthens the case for a railway in Skelmersdale. It is wrong that the largest town in the area is not connected to the rail network. I am determined that this must and will change. I have made my views on this issue known in my response to the initial rail consultation. In recent weeks I have met with Network Rail to express the absolute necessity for a railway station in Skelmersdale; and the real benefits it would offer local residents. I will continue to fight hard on every occasion to deliver a new rail link for the town."
