§ 23. Mr. Janman
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what priority is now being given to improving rail services on the Fenchurch Street line.
§ Mr. Freeman
British Rail is treating plans for modernisation of the Fenchurch Street line as a matter of high priority. It will shortly let a contract for the £50 resignalling programme which should be completed during 1995. British Rail sees this as the key to improving services. British Rail's rolling stock proposals are currently under discussion with the Department.
