HC Deb 18 July 1979 vol 970 c747W
34. Mr. Walter Johnson

asked the Minister of Transport what recent discussions he has had with the chairman of the Greater London Council concerning the Jubilee line; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Fowler

I have agreed with Sir Horace Cutler that, in the light of the pressing constraints on public expenditure, there should be a pause in the planning of extensions to the Jubilee line while we examine together the possibility of lower-cost options.
