HC Deb 24 February 1965 vol 707 c108W
67. Mr. Allason

asked the Minister of Transport whether he has yet received notice from the Railways Board to close the Luton-Harpenden-Moorgate line, and whether he is satisfied that the co-ordination of commuter services into London from the north is adequate.

Mr. Tom Fraser

The Board have recently announced that their plans for closures now include the withdrawal of these services, but I have not yet received details of their proposals.

Co-ordination of services in London is a statutory responsibility of the Railways and London Boards. They have in fact set up a Passenger Transport Committee for London to advise, among other things, on matters of common concern to both in relation to the provision of passenger transport services in the London area. I have no reason to suppose that these arrangements are not fully adequate.
