HC Deb 24 January 2001 vol 361 c607W
Mr. Dismore

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions if he will make a statement about the frequency and reliability of Thameslink services from Mill Hill, Bushey and Hendon. [146732]

Mr. Hill

Most rail services have been subject to delay and cancellations due to adverse weather conditions and the speed restrictions imposed for safety reasons by Railtrack in the aftermath of the tragic accident at Hatfield. Improved services on the cross-London route began to take effect from 8 January and Thameslink is now running a near normal service.
