London Underground (Public-Private Partnership) — Welcomes the implementation — 13 Nov 2000
John Prescott MP, Kingston upon Hull East voted with the majority (Aye).
After rejecting the previous motion for debate, 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.
By 2008 the House of Commons were debating the collapse of the contract and authorizing a £2 billion bail-out.
