HC Deb 17 June 1965 vol 714 c118W
Mr. Ron Lewis

asked the Minister of Transport what organisations have written to him regarding the closure of the East Suffolk line; if he considers this a major closure; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Tom Fraser

The following is a list of organisations from which I have received correspondence about the proposal:

  • Southwold Borough Council
  • Saxmundham Urban District Council
  • Deben Rural District Council
  • The Parish Councils of Laxfield, Melton, Middleton, Snape, Rendham and Wickham
  • Eastern Regional Board for Industry
  • Ipswich and District Trades Council
  • Lowestoft and District Trades Council
  • Saxmundham and District Chamber of Trade
  • Beccles Borough Labour Party
  • Eastern Regional Council of the Labour Party
  • Eye Labour Party
  • Ipswich Borough Labour Party
  • Lowestoft Labour Party
  • Ipswich Liberal Association
  • N.U.R. Lowestoft No. 2 Branch
  • East Anglian Permanent Holiday Camp Association
  • East Anglia District Synod, Methodist Church
  • Railway Invigoration Society
  • The East Suffolk County Federation of Women's Institutes and twelve individual Institutes.

I cannot form a view of the proposal until I have received and studied the report of the Transport Users Consultative Committee on hardship together with all other relevant factors.
