HL Deb 28 March 2000 vol 611 c61WA
Lord Marlesford

asked Her Majesty's Government:

On what date the lift to the Jubilee Line platforms at Westminster Underground station became unserviceable; and on what date they expect it to be back in service. [HL1603]

The Minister of State, Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions (Lord Macdonald of Tradeston)

This is an operational matter for London Underground. However I understand from LU that the lift from the Jubilee Line to the District and Circle Line at Westminster station has not yet been approved by the LU Chief Engineer for handover to the extended Jubilee Line and is awaiting some remedial work which will facilitate this.

London Underground hope to have the lift in service by the end of March.
