§ 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.
