HC Deb 25 June 1980 vol 987 c230W
56. Mr. Allen McKay

asked the Minister of Transport if he will authorise the construction of a number of high-speed trains to enable improvement of the Sheffield to London line.

Mr. Fowler

I am not aware that the British Railways Board have any plans to seek approval for further high speed trains, but I would consider very carefully any proposals that they might submit to me.
