HC Deb 21 May 1980 vol 985 c249W
45. Mr. Prescott

asked the Minister of Transport if he will make a statement on Government policy on the joint report of his Department and British Railways on rail electrification.

Mr. Fowler

I shall make a statement about electrification when I have considered the final report of the joint steering group, but I do not expect to receive its report until late summer.
