HC Deb 12 April 1989 vol 150 c566W
Mr. Cohen

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what facilities are available on the London Underground in the event of an individual suffering a heart attack on a train; and what instructions are given to staff on whether or not to move the sufferer.

Mr. Portillo

I understand that stretchers and first aid kits are available on the Underground but that staff are instructed to summon expert medical assistance in the event of someone being taken seriously ill. Staff are advised not to move any passenger suspected of suffering a heart attack.
