HC Deb 21 January 1991 vol 184 c34W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what discussions he has had with the chairman of British Rail about financial assistance to improve the condition of the cuttings and make environmental improvements between Liverpool Lime Street and Edge Hill stations.

Mr. Freeman

No. These are operational matters for British Rail. However, I understand that preliminary discussions have taken place between BR and Merseyside development corporation and the Merseyside task force to create a partnership to carry out an environmental improvement scheme at Edge Hill station.
