Transport Secretary Stephen Byers today reaffirmed the Government''s commitment to rail safety in his response to the publication of the Ladbroke Grove report.

He said:

''I am grateful to Lord Cullen for today's report into the causes of the Ladbroke Grove rail crash. On such a day our thoughts turn to the survivors and bereaved of that tragic accident. We cannot begin to imagine the pain and suffering felt by these people and it is important that we bear their experiences in mind as we act to improve rail safety in this country.

''Safety is paramount and at the very heart of our policies on revitalising the railways. Our railways are safe, but we must never be complacent. Safety is a matter of continual improvement and I have asked the HSC to ensure that the recommendations are acted upon, and to report to me within six months.

''I now await the final part of Lord Cullen''s report into the culture, management and regulation of safety on the railways. This will be a particularly valuable document which will enable us to take the further necessary measures to enhance rail safety.''

Notes to Editors

Today''s report, published by the Health and Safety Commission, complements Professor Uff''s report into the Southall crash in 1997, published last year, and the joint report by Lord Cullen and Professor Uff into train protection systems, published in March. A further report, expected later this year, on part 2 of Lord Cullen''s Inquiry into Ladbroke Grove will make recommendations on the culture, management and regulation of safety on the railways.
