HC Deb 07 April 1965 vol 710 c73W
53. Mr. Kimball

asked the Minister of Transport when he will announce his decision about the application of British Rail to withdraw passenger train services between Lincoln Central and Barnetby; if he is aware that the Transport Users' Consultative Committee for the East Midlands Area expressed the view that hardship would result; and if he is aware that a decision is needed to clear up local anxiety.

Mr. Tom Fraser

In accordance with the new arrangements I announced on 31st March, I shall be referring the proposal to the economic planning councils and boards concerned for their comments on its planning implications. I fully understand the local concern and I will certainly give my decision at the earliest time possible.
