"The travelling public will be aware that there have been many incidents where train services on the London Underground (LUL) have been interrupted by fire and bomb alerts. I was asked by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to look at the nature and frequency of these stoppages and to evaluate the risks associated with them. This also leads to a consideration of whether anything can reasonably be done, without increasing hazards, to reduce the delays suffered by passengers and the costs to them and the Underground. I was additionally asked to consider any parallel problems in other railway and mass transport systems."
