The national railway operators, London Underground, the Docklands Light Railway and Nexus Metro have submitted by-laws to the Secretary of State for confirmation. These by-laws, and the formal representations received from persons affected by these by-laws, have all been considered by the Secretary of State. We can announce that the bylaws, with a number of modifications, have been now confirmed, and 18 February 2001 has been set as the date that the new by-laws will come into force.
