§ Lord Peston
asked Her Majesty's Government:
When they will respond to the Seventh Report of this Session from the House of Commons Environment, Transport and Regional Affairs Committee on London Underground (HC 715). [HL3645]
§ Lord Whitty
The Government welcome the Committee's report on our plans for a Public Private Partnership for London Underground (HC 715-I.), which has provided a useful input to the discussion on the details of the proposals. We share with the committee the desire to create a first-class tube service fit to take us into the next millennium. We agree with many of the report's recommendations, and are today publishing our formal response, copies of which will be laid before the House.
