HC Deb 22 December 1988 vol 144 c411W
Mr. Bowis

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what proposals British Rail has made to him to replace rolling stock lost in the Clapham accident.

These will replace the six units written off in the Clapham junction accident. The replacement units should he delivered in the course of 1989.
