HL Deb 01 July 2004 vol 663 c48WA

Lord Rogan asked Her Majesty's Government:

For how long the lift in Heathrow Terminal One has been out of action; and whether they will estimate when it will be back in full working order. [HL3465]

Lord Davies of Oldham:

There are 60 lifts in Terminal 1. I understand lifts 13 and 14 were taken out of service in July 2003. A planned replacement programme has been delayed but the lifts are now due back in service at the end of August 2004. Lift 17 was out of service for four days at the start of this month and returned to service on 7 June 2004. Apart from lifts 13, 14, and 17, all other Terminal 1 lifts which experienced faults in 2004 returned to service on the day of the fault.
