HC Deb 16 December 1963 vol 686 cc171-2W
Mr. Warbey

asked the Minister of Transport if he will furnish a list of branch lines radiating from Nottingham in respect of which closure proposals for passenger services have been notified by British Railways; and, in each case, what stage of development has been reached, including the dates of hearings by the Transport Users' Consultative Committee.

Mr. Marples

The Railways Board gave notice under Section 56 of the Transport Act 1962 on 8th July of a proposal to withdraw passenger services between Derby Friargate and Nottingham Victoria. The East Midland Transport Users' Consultative Committee held a meeting to hear objections on 29th October. I expect their report on hardship shortly.

The Board gave statutory notice on 14th November of a proposal to withdraw the Nottingham Midland-Worksop passenger service. The last date for receiving objections is 3rd January, 1964. A meeting to hear objections has not yet been fixed.
