HC Deb 13 February 1976 vol 905 c445W
Mr. Whitehead

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what information his Department has received about the experiments now being conducted at Allach and Mansching, West Germany, into new forms of powered transport; and whether any British monitoring of these experiments is taking place.

Dr. Gilbert

This work is concerned with high-speed ground transport vehicles, supported by magnetic levitation and propelled by linear motors, and is the subject of close contact between officials of this Department, British Rail and the Federal German Ministry of Transport.
