AMA CONDEMNS RAIL SAFETY PLANS AS NAIVE AND BUREAUCRATIC

Plans for health and safety controls over the privatised railways network are 'simplistic if not naive', says the Association of Metropolitan Authorities.

Tony Ritchie, who chairs the AMA's fire and emergency planning comittee said today: 'The overall effect of the proposals from the Health and Safety Commission is incredibly bureaucratic and cumbersome. Its not entirely the Commission's fault. The real reason for the mess is the way the government has decided to carve up the industry for privatisation. There were always bound to be problems once the decision was made to split infrastructure controllers from train operators.'
