HC Deb 04 December 1963 vol 685 c173W
82. Mr. H. Hynd

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in considering proposals for rail closures to which objections have been lodged, he will bear in mind the transport needs of developing industrial estates before he authorises any further closure of railways.

Mr. Marples

Wherever the transport needs of industrial estates are a factor in individual closure proposals, I shall certainly take them into account before giving my decision.
