HC Deb 18 June 1990 vol 174 c445W
Mr. Evennett

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what representations he has received advocating the extension of the London underground to Thamesmead; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Freeman

The Department has received a small number of representations in support of an extension of the Jubilee line to Thamesmead. The east London rail study showed that the capital costs (estimated at £420 million in 1989 prices) and operating costs would greatly exceed the revenues and benefits.
