HC Deb 01 December 1965 vol 721 cc196-7W
66. Mr. George Y. Mackie

asked the Minister of Transport if he will give a general direction, in the public interest, to British Railways to consider the lines kept open for social reasons in Scotland as suitable for separate management.

Mr. Tom Fraser

No. Even if such a matter were appropriate for a general direction, I am not convinced of a need to subdivide the present responsibilities of the Scottish Railway Board.
