Is the hon. Gentleman aware that many of the delays on the Southern Region are due to the notorious bottleneck at Borough Market? Is he aware that, with no Underground facilities available, my constituents, and many others in the South-East, are entirely dependent on surface railway links to London? Will he take this into account when proposals are submitted to him?
As a regular commuter on that line I am well aware, and so is my Department, of the present difficulties. The working group is examining a number of different schemes at the moment.
