HC Deb 28 July 1965 vol 717 c125W
96. Mr. Robert Mathew

asked the Minister of Transport if he has yet come to his decisions on the Report of the South-West Transport Users' Consultative Committee on rail closure proposals between Seaton and Seaton Junction, Sid-mouth and Sidmouth Junction, and Tipton St. John to Exmouth; and if he will give an assurance that any decision to permit such closures will be so timed as to allow discussion in Parliament before such decisions are implemented.

Mr. Tom Fraser

I am anxious to reach decisions on these and related proposals as soon as possible. I cannot, however, undertake to require the Board to maintain services which I agree may be withdawn until the decisions have been debated.
