92. Mr. DOYLE
asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that the Forth goods station at Nwcastle-on-Tyne has again been closed for over a month; 407 that the local official can offer no hopes of permits being granted for any goods except foodstuffs in the near future; and if, in view of the detrimental effects on employment and Christmas trade, and business generally, he will inquire into this matter?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of TRANSPORT (Mr. Neal)
I have no information as to the circumstances referred to, but I am making inquiries.
