HC Deb 20 December 1963 vol 686 cc301-2W
Mr. Ross

asked the Minister of Transport what general direction he has given, or intends to give, in the public interest, to the Railways Board to halt or to limit the closure of stations and withdrawals of rail passenger services in Scotland.

Mr. Marples

None. But if in any particular case it appears to me to be in the public interest that a service should be retained, I shall withhold my consent, without which no opposed passenger closure can take place.
