HC Deb 27 October 1999 vol 336 cc867-8W
Mr. Fearn

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions (1) if his Department plans to investigate the environmental impact of building artificial reefs to create surfing waves around Britain's coast; [95929]

Train operating companies are expected to follow the crime prevention strategies in our guidance 'Personal Security on Public Transport—Guidelines for Operators', including measures such as CCTV, improved lighting and the availability of trained staff. My Department also encourages train operators to join the 'Secure Station' and 'Secured Car Park' schemes where they apply for accreditation by meeting agreed standards on crime prevention measures.
