‘Burdened’ with a grant

[“‘Northern Powerhouse’ needs new franchise“, Alan Marshall, Railnews, page 18, Dec 2014]

[…] Recent figures released by the Department for Transport show that, while Northern carries just four per cent of all the passenger/kilometres [sic] on the whole national network, it is burdened with 12 per cent of the grant paid by Government to Network Rail, so on paper Northern has the highest subsidy of any operator.
