HC Deb 18 December 2001 vol 377 c225W
Mr. Don Foster

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions if he will place in the Library copies of(a) the documentation related to the railway safety cases for mark 1 passenger carriages submitted to the Health and Safety Executive and (b) the assessment of these safety cases by the Health and Safety Executive since December 2000. [23526]

Mr. Jamieson

Every railway operator is required to have a railway safety case setting out the arrangements for its management of health and safety across the board. These are lengthy and detailed documents covering a wide range of health and safety issues including those relating to passenger rolling stock. They are available for public inspection at the relevant operators' premises.
