HC Deb 21 October 1987 vol 120 c752W
Mr. Spearing

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if, consequent to the traffic flows current on the M25 motorway, he will investigate the possibility of developing new orbital rail services in or adjacent to the Greater London area on existing or new lengths of track.

Mr. David Mitchell

It is for British Rail and London Regional Transport to assess potential demand for rail services, and to bring forward proposals.
