§ Mr. Spearing
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what conclusions he has reached concerning the recommendations of the Barran Report on London railways that there should be a body, other than the GLC, to co-ordinate the London rail services of British Railways and London Transport.
§ Dr. Gilbert
The GLC has now completed its widespread consultations on the London Rail Study report and recommendations, and officials are preparing a report for its Transport Committee's consideration. When the council's reaction to the proposal to establish a rail advisory committee is known I hope to be able to say what further progress can be made.
