HC Deb 30 January 1964 vol 688 c90W
Mrs. Hart

asked the Minister of Transport if he will introduce legislation to suspend the hearing of objections to rail closures by transport users' consultative committees as soon as a General Election is announced in order that Members of Parliament may continue to be able to represent their constituents at the hearings.

Mr. Marples

No. Under Section 56 of the Transport Act, 1962, no restrictions are placed on the status of those representing objectors at T.U.C.C. hearings.
