§ Mr. Neave
asked the Minister of Transport how he proposes to inform the interested parties and members of the public of the terms of his consent to a passenger closure proposal under Section 56(11) of the Transport Act, 1962, and of any conditions that he may attach to it.
§ Mr. Marples
The procedure to be followed will be that established last year under which the Railways Board or the London Board (as the case may be) publishes my consent (of which any conditions would be an essential part) in full in the local newspapers in which it published the statutory notice of closure under Section 56(7) of the Act. The board concerned also posts copies of the consent on all stations affected. The Area Transport Users Consultative Committee send copies to the principal objectors. I have arranged that hon. Members who have interested themselves in a particular proposal shall also be informed.
