Crossrail Bill

Volume 702: debated on Thursday 5 June 2008

My honourable friend the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Transport (Tom Harris) has made the following Ministerial Statement.

I am today placing in the House Libraries a copy of the promoter of the Crossrail Bill's response to the first special report of Session 2007-08 published on 27 May by the House of Lords Select Committee on the Crossrail Bill (Select Committee on the Crossrail Bill 1st Special Report 2007-08: HL Paper 112-I).

The promoter's response welcomes the committee's special report, and thanks the committee for its careful and considered work, which was concluded with a comprehensive special report.

The promoter also provides a response to specific sections of the committee's special report, which I hope will be of assistance to petitioners, the House and other stakeholders and interested parties.
