§ Sir F. Markham
asked the Minister of Transport whether he has now considered the Transport Users' Consultative Committee's reports on the proposed closing of the Wolverton-Newport Pagnell line and Castlethorpe Station; and whether he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Marples
I have decided to consent to the closure of the passenger service between Wolverton and Newport Pagnell subject to the provision of certain extra bus services. I have not yet completed my consideration of the proposal to close Castlethorpe station.
