Motion text

That this House congratulates Channel 4 for screening 'The Navigators' on Sunday 2nd December; praises the cast and crew for continuing the burgeoning Channel 4 tradition of creating thought-provoking, fact-ional drama along the lines of GBH and Dockers; acknowledges the programme as a hard-hitting, and realistic portrayal of the impact on the railway system and railway safety of ill-thought out privatisation in the early 1990's; and calls on the Government to ensure that whatever changes are effected in the railway network as a result of Railtrack going into administration, safety remains the number one priority.
