HC Deb 31 July 1963 vol 682 c441
10. Mr. Mapp

asked the Minister of Transport what directions he has now given to the Railways Board in respect of public advance notice for the discontinuance of passenger or goods services as provided for by Section 54 of the Transport Act, 1962.

Mr. Galbraith

My right hon. Friend has now given the Railways Board, under Section 54 of the Transport Act, 1962, directions and determinations about the publication of advance information of their plans for the discontinuance of passenger, goods and shipping services. With permission I will circulate a copy in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Mr. Mapp

Will the Parliamentary Secretary fill in the other data in this respect? The Section speaks of advanced notices as to manner and place where notices shall be exhibited. Would he be more forthcoming, as this Section maybe somewhat contradictory of Section 56?

Mr. Galbraith

If the hon. Gentleman reads what I am circulating in the OFFICIAL REPORT, I think he will find that that point is covered.
