§ Tom Brake
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions what progress London Underground Ltd. has made in addressing the safety issues the Health and Safety Executive has raised with LUL concerning their proposed railway safety case for the running of London Underground under the proposed public private partnership. 
§ Mr. Jamieson
I understand that the Health and Safety Executive has received London Underground Ltd."s formal response on the issues raised. Under the safety case regime, which is an iterative process, HSE will take the time it needs to determine whether the issues have been satisfactorily closed out.
