§ DUTY OF FREIGHT CORPORATION AND RAILWAYS BOARD TO REVIEW ORGANISATION
§ Mr. Carmichael
1 beg to move Amendment No. 161, in page 59, line 5, at end insert:'after consultation with the authority to whom the directions are given'.This fulfils an undertaking given by the former Minister, in response to a Liberal Amendment moved by the hon. Member for Bodmin (Mr. Bessell) and supported by my hon. Friend the Member for Central Ayrshire (Mr. Manuel). In the interests of hastening proceedings I will say no more.
§ Mr. Bessell
I do not want to delay the House, but I should like to take this opportunity of thanking the hon. Gentleman for meeting the point raised in Committee by myself and by the hon. Member for Central Ayrshire (Mr. Manuel). I am sure that we are both equally gratified by this concession, which will be extremely helpful.
§ Amendment agreed to.
