One of the concerns that has been expressed, particularly about the Metropolitan line, is that various proposals have been voiced at different times to suggest actually reducing the service to the stopping stations, and increasing the service to, if you like, the mainline bits of the service ' Harrow on the Hill, Wembley Park, etc. Can you give us an assurance that commuters will not see that reduction take place?

Absolutely. The first set of percentage figures I read out, all of it is going to increase. Bear in mind there will be further increases driven by our decision to extend the Metropolitan line into Watford town centre, which I think will be a dramatic improvement, and no doubt meets demands by the people of Watford to become a London borough. It is all going to increase; you have my word.
