§ Mrs. Dunwoody
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions if he will list the recent changes in Railtrack's maintenance and renewal contracts that have resulted in redundancies in the Crewe area. 
§ Mr. Hill
I understand from Railtrack that from next April responsibility for maintaining the infrastructure of that section of the west coast main line covering the Crewe area will transfer from GTRM to Jarvis under a new contract. The GTRM staff are also due to transfer to Jarvis. The issue of subsequent staffing levels within GTRM and Jarvis will be a matter for the companies.
