HC Deb 03 April 1957 vol 568 c386
31. Mr. Hayman

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether orders proposed to be made by the Minister under Clause 43 of the British Transport Commission Bill will be submitted to Parliament; and whether they will be subject to the affirmative or the negative procedure.

Mr. Watkinson

No, Sir.

Mr. Hayman

Will these orders receive the right hon. Gentleman's personal attention, or will the power of approval be delegated to a civil servant?

Mr. Watkinson

The hon. Member and any other hon. Member interested may like to have a copy, which will shortly be published, of a special report on this very important problem. They will see clearly from it how we are trying to handle this matter and to improve the whole level-crossing system of the country.
