To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what information the Health and Safety Executive has on the problems being experienced with signal failures on the east coast railway route between Leeds and London.

I understand from BR that signals have been thrown to red, and other equipment has been disabled, as a result of serious problems of vandalism on the east coast main line in recent weeks. Such incidents were not reportable to the Health and Safety Executive since they did not involve a safety risk.
