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.
