§ Mr. McInnes
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation when the British Transport Commission is likely to submit a scheme for the reorganisation and for the appointment of an authority for the railway undertaking in Scotland in accordance with Section 16, subsection (9), of the Transport Act, 1953.
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
The Commission submitted their scheme to me on 15th April and, in accordance with the provisions of Section 17 (1) of the Transport Act, 1953, I am now consulting the interests likely to be specially affected by it. The scheme includes provision for an authority for Scotland.
