§ 93. Mr. J. Johnson
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether he will consider the possibility of converting the old Great Central Railway 153W permanent way from Marylebone to Rugby into a modern trunk road; and what he estimates to be the approximate cost of such an operation.
§ Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
No. The British Transport Commission, who are responsible for this railway, regard it as an important route carrying traffic which could not be diverted to alternative routes.
