§ Mr. David Mitchell
I understand that Network SouthEast has earmarked £13.4 million for Operation Pride in 1986–87. This will pay for more capacity to relieve overcrowding, more frequent train cleaning, a better service at telephone inquiry bureaux, and some modernisation of stations. In addition, NSE has completed some major projects this year, including three electrification schemes. A number of stations, notably Dorchester, Brighton, Faversham, Ealing Broadway and Andover, have been modernised.
