Your NCE 500 question last week asked if it is acceptable to 'relax' safety standards on the railways to keep running costs down. Of course it isn't, and it was hardly surprisingly that 80% said no.
The question rather misses the point of Alistair Darling's announcement of a government rail industry review as you report it.
Perhaps you should have asked either 'Do you think streamlining safety on the railways will save money?' or 'Do you think streamlining safety on the railways will reduce accidents?'
