London Underground (Public-Private Partnership) — Welcomes the implementation — 13 Nov 2000

Dominic Grieve MP, Beaconsfield voted in the minority (No).

After rejecting the previous motion for debate,[1] the majority voted to set the motion that would be passed by the House to be:

This House welcomes the Government's implementation of its manifesto commitment to create a Public Private Partnership for London Underground which will bring in £8 billion of new investment and up to £5 billion worth of maintenance over the next fifteen years-leading to faster, more reliable journeys and a safer, more attractive Underground of the kind Londoners deserve; supports the doubling of the resources available to the Mayor for transport in London over the next three years; condemns the previous Government's record of under-investment in transport and in particular their erratic investment in London Underground, which left it with a £1.2 billion backlog; and deplores the Official Opposition's plans to privatise London Underground, which will fundamentally undermine public accountability.[2]

By 2008 the House of Commons were debating the collapse of the contract and authorizing a £2 billion bail-out.[3]
