note 107


John Watts, Minister for Railways and Roads, said today that providing a high standard of safety remains a top priority during railway privatisation.

Welcoming publication of this year's safety plan for the rail industry, Mr Watts said in the House of Commons:

"The Plan sets out strategic safety objectives for 1995/96, reports safety performance by British Rail and Railtrack in 1994/95, and gives details of the arrangements for managing safety on the railway. The objectives are designed to maintain safety and to set strategic objectives to improve it wherever practicable. It will ensure that full and proper attention is paid to safety during the privatisation process".

NOTES TO EDITORS

1. Railtrack's objectives, agreed with the Secretary of State, require Railtrack to co-ordinate an industry-wide Safety Plan, in consultation with British Rail and other operators. This also meets a commitment in Railtrack's Safety Case, accepted by the Health and Safety Executive.

2. Copies of the Plan are available from Railtrack.
