HC Deb 10 July 1990 vol 176 c118W
Mr. Jack

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what information he has as to the impact of Government investment on the fastest scheduled journey time on InterCity routes in(a) 1974, (b) 1979 and (c) in the current year.

Mr. Freeman

[holding answer 5 July 1990]: InterCity journey times improved significantly between 1974 and 1979 as a result of investment in high speed diesel trains approved in 1973. Electrification approved in 1984 is bringing further reductions in journey times on the east coast main line.
