THE DEMISE OF MAIL RAIL

  • Session: 2002-03
  • Date tabled: 28.04.2003
  • Primary sponsor: Foster, Don
  • Sponsors:

    That this House regrets the demise of Royal Mail's historic and unique underground railway in London known as Mail Rail, dedicated to the transportation of letters and parcels across 23 miles of track running from Paddington to Whitechapel; notes the valuable service that Mail Rail provided by delivering an average of four million letters per day between nine dedicated stations including two mainline railway stations and four sorting offices; further regrets that Mail Rail is no longer financially viable; urges all parties involved to ensure its mothballing does not result in additional lorry journeys, congestion and pollution on London's streets; and calls on the Government to consider the legislative changes necessary to enable alternative use of the system so that this important piece of infrastructure can continue to benefit the capital.
