HC Deb 11 November 1964 vol 701 c993
1. Mr. William Hamilton

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in order to establish the true basic costs of all forms of transport, he will initiate a full inquiry into the problem, meanwhile preventing any further railway closures.

The Minister of Transport (Mr. Tom Fraser)

I am now considering what further work might be done on costs of various forms of transport. On rail closures, I would refer my hon. Friend to my statement of 4th November, in which I made clear my intention to avoid any action which might prejudice the railways' possible contribution to our future plans.
