§ 50. Mr. Dempsey
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what research he has undertaken into the safety of fast trains travelling between Glasgow and London on electrified rails; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Eldon Griffiths
None. Fast electric trains have been running between Euston and Crewe since 1961. No particular safety difficulties have arisen, and I have no reason to think that extension of electrification to Glasgow will create new problems.
