HC Deb 27 July 1955 vol 544 c148W
101. Mr. Speir

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether, in view of the continuing decrease in the number of regular agricultural workers and the depopulation of certain rural areas, he will take steps to arrange an inter-Departmental committee to be set up to consider ways and means of improving public transport facilities in rural areas.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

No. I do not think such a committee would serve any useful purpose.
