HC Deb 21 June 1993 vol 227 c57W
Ms Hoey

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what information he has as to which other major European cities have underground rail systems which either break even or make an operating profit.

Mr. Norris

Detailed information on the financial performance of underground railway systems outside Britain is not collected by the Government. In any case, direct comparisons between complex systems operating under very different financial regimes are extremely difficult to make.
