HC Deb 20 July 1987 vol 120 c30W
19. Sir John Biggs-Davison

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will meet the chairman of London Regional Transport to discuss current problems on the London Underground.

Mr. David Mitchell

My right hon. Friend meets the chairman of London Regional Transport at regular intervals, most recently on 15 July, and is kept fully informed of developments. The Underground is carrying record numbers of passengers. The board recognises that this success is creating its own problems. LRT plans to invest £280 million this year, of which the majority is designed to improve conditions on the Underground.
