§ Mr. Stainton
asked the Minister of Transport what proposals he has now received from the Railways Board regarding the closure of the East Suffolk 174W line; and if he will regard this as a major closure proposal.
§ Mr. Tom Fraser
The Board's proposals are for the closure of the passenger services between Ipswich and Lowestoft and between Saxmundham and Aldeburgh, involving eleven stations. I have just received them and have not yet reached any conclusions.
