HC Deb 16 June 1997 vol 296 cc40-1W
Mr. Chidgey

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what is the policy of the Health and Safety Executive on the use of MK l rolling stock on British railways until 2007. [3223]

Ms Glenda Jackson

The Health and Safety Commission and Executive are currently working towards setting a firm timetable for the withdrawal or modification of Mark 1 rolling stock well before 2007. The Executive will shortly write to train operating companies and other interested parties, seeking their views on ways of securing that aim.
