§ 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.
