To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what is his latest estimate of the publication date of the Health and Safety Executive's report into British Rail slam-shut doors; and for what reason the report was not published on the date originally expected.

Most of the technical work on this very detailed and complex investigation has now been completed and work is in hand on the preparation of the report. The Health and Safety Executive attaches the utmost importance to producing a report which is comprehensive, and contains practicable recommendations. I understand that the present estimate is that publication will be possible in the spring.
