§ Mrs. Jane Kennedy
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what level of investment his Department has planned for signalling and telecommunications equipment on the west coast main line railway link from London to Glasgow for the six years from 1994.
§ Mr. Freeman
It is for British Rail to determine its investment priorities within available resources. I understand that it intends to commence work soon on 471W renewing infrastructure on the west coast main line. The precise timing, and cost, will be decided in the spring, when British Rail has completed its next corporate plan.
