HC Deb 24 November 1954 vol 533 c141W
Mr. Maclay

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation when it is proposed to set up a Scottish Transport Council.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

The Government adhere to the promises given during the debates on the Transport Bill and intend to implement them. The Transport Council cannot, of course, be set up until the Scottish Railway Authority is in being; but when that Authority has been constituted the necessary steps will be taken to set up the Scottish Transport Council.
