To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will place in the Library copies of the reports of the fire brigade annual inspections of the London Undergound for 1978 and each year up to and including 1986.
No. Now that the formal investigation into the King's Cross fire has begun, LRT will be making all relevant material available to it. I fully recognise the concern of the hon. Member and all Members of the House, and of the general public in the aftermath of the disaster, but it is the investigation that has the responsibility to establish the cause of the accident and to examine the circumstances attending it.
