§ 59. Mr. Crosland
asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the delay which has already elapsed and local anxiety on the matter, he will now announce his decision on the recommendation of the Transport Users' Consultative Committee that the Cleethorpes-New Holland line should not be closed.
§ Mr. Galbraith
The Railways Board has been asked to consider whether any improvements can be made in the alternatives which would be available if closure took place. My right hon. Friend will consider the proposal further in the light of its reply, and I cannot at present say when he will be able to reach his decision.
