asked the Secretary of State for Transport when he next intends to meet the chairman of the Tyne and Wear passenger transport executive to discuss the future of the Metro; and if he will make a statement.

I met a delegation from Tyne and Wear county council, which was accompanied by the director general and certain other officers of the PTE, to discuss the Tyne and Wear metro on 14 May. Discussions about the metro are continuing between my officials and those of the passenger transport executive, and I will be ready to meet Tyne and Wear representatives again whenever it appears such a meeting would be useful.
