HC Deb 31 January 1964 vol 688 c104W
Mr. Spriggs

asked the Minister of Transport if he will give a general direction, in the public interest, to the British Railways Board to provide all relevant information about railway station finances which hon. Members may wish to obtain for Parliamentary purposes.

Mr. Marples

No. When statutory notice is given of a passenger closure proposal, the Board through the Transport Users Consultative Committee supplies to objectors a statement of the direct costs and receipts attributable to the service proposed for closure. The Board has also agreed to supply such information, where available, to hon. Members on request in advance of notice of closure.
