§ Mr. Winnick
asked the Minister of Transport how soon she will make an announcement on extending the Underground line to Brixton; how long has this matter been under discussion; whether she is aware that already a number of people involved in the Victoria line extension have gone to other work; and if she will make a statement.
§ Mr. Swingler
My right hon. Friend will make an announcement as soon as possible about this proposal which London Transport submitted to her in October, 1965. We realise the importance of continuity in this work, but there are difficult issues to resolve.
