§ Mr. Cohen
asked the Secretary of State for Transport what provision he is making for continuation of the funding of the joint BR/GLC scheme to provide improved access facilities for the disabled at stations in Greater London following the abolition of the Greater London council; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. David Mitchell
I am confident that funding schemes of this kind will, after abolition of the GLC, be better handled by the London boroughs concerned. They already have powers to do this under section 59 of the London Regional Transport Act 1984.
