§ 49. Mr. Wingfield Digby
asked the Minister of Transport why such a high proportion of the delayed road schemes is in the South-West; and what account he has taken of this in approving rail closures in the same area.
§ Mr. Tom Fraser
Schemes, whether in the South-West or elsewhere, were deferred unless they fell into one of the exempted categories. None of the deferred schemes in the South-West had any relevance to a railway closure.
