HC Deb 03 March 1965 vol 707 cc239-40W
36. Mr. Wallace

asked the Minister of Transport how many goods receiving points of British Railways and in each region of British Railways, respectively, have been closed since September, 1964, to the nearest date.

Mr. Swingler

I understand from the Railways Board that the number of stations and depôts from which freight facilities were withdrawn in the period 1st October, 1964, to 8th February, 1965, was 578.

I am sure that the Board will do all it can to provide any more detailed information that my hon. Friend requires in relation to particular regions.
