HC Deb 31 July 1963 vol 682 c83W
68. Mr. K. Robinson

asked the Minister of Transport whether he has yet received formal notice from the Railways Board to terminate passenger services on the Broad Street-Richmond line.

Mr. Marples

No. The Board is not required to give me formal notice of a proposal to close a passenger service, though where notice has been given and an objection lodged with the Area Transport Users Consultative Committee, the Committee must then inform me. I understand that formal notice of closure has not yet been published in the case of the Broad Street-Richmond passenger service.
