HC Deb 17 June 1958 vol 589 cc64-5W
77. Mr. Kershaw

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs what consultations he has had with the British Transport Commission and local authorities as to the site of the proposed new marshalling yard near Gloucester; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Bevins

There has been no occasion for my right hon. Friend to consult the British Transport Commission or local authorities about any proposal for the siting of a new marshalling yard near Gloucester. I understand that the Commission has as yet no firm proposals and has made only an informal approach to the Gloucestershire County Council. Any application for planning permission would be for the county council to deal with in the first instance.
