The Deputy Prime Minister said:

"I view with grave concern the increase in Railtrack's cost estimates for the East Coast Main Line (ECML) announced by the Strategic Rail Authority (SRA) today. I have therefore asked the Chairman of the SRA, Sir Alastair Morton, to advise me urgently of the reasons for this, why this information has only become available at this late stage and what the implications are for the ECML refranchising process now taking place."
