HC Deb 01 December 1965 vol 721 cc191-2W
89. Mr. Scott-Hopkins

asked the Minister of Transport what steps he proposes to take to improve the classified roads in North Cornwall which will bear increased traffic due to rail closure proposals for that area.

Mr. Tom Fraser

I am at present considering proposals for the withdrawal of two railway passenger services in North Cornwall. Before giving my consent, I will take into account the effect of the closure on road traffic. Where existing roads appear to be inadequate for increased traffic, I can refuse consent or defer it until road improvements have been carried out.
