HC Deb 31 July 1963 vol 682 c81W
41. Mr. W. Hamilton

asked the Minister of Transport in respect of what railway mileage in Scotland he has so far been informed of proposed closures by the Railways Board.

Mr. Marples

Notice has been given of proposals to withdraw all passenger services from 154 miles of railway in Scotland.

52. Mr. Manuel

asked the Minister of Transport what consultations he has now had with the Secretary of State for Scotland regarding such closure proposals as have now been made to him for passenger services in Scotland.

Mr. Marples

The Scottish Transport Users Consultative Committee has not had occasion to report to me on any passenger closure proposals since August, 1962. But in any case, the hon. Member will, I feel sure, understand that I cannot undertake to keep hon. Members informed of the timing and nature of my consultations with my colleagues.
