HC Deb 19 December 1990 vol 183 cc171-2W
Mr. Allen

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when his Department next intends to meet officials from Wembley stadium to discuss the safety of the pedestrian underpass to the underground station; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Freeman

The Department of Transport has no immediate plans to meet officials from Wembley statium. Several meetings have been held. The underpass is the responsibility of the London borough of Brent. We have provided in the 1991–92 local roads capital expenditure settlement, announced on 17 December, supplementary credit approval to enable the borough to fund a scheme to improve the underpass. I understand that Wembly plc is willing to contribute to the cost.
