HC Deb 20 December 1989 vol 164 c276W
Mr. Harry Greenway

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many new escalators have been built on London Underground stations during the last five years; how many new ones are planned and at what cost; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Portillo

This is an operational matter for London Underground Limited, but I understand that 26 escalators have entered service in the last five years and that a further 11 are currently under construction.
