§ Mr. Barnett
asked the Minister of Transport if, in view of the White Paper on Transport, she will announce her 221W decision to keep open the railway passenger service between Oldham and Rochdale via Royton, Crompton, New Hey and Milnrow.
§ Mr. Swingler
My right hon. Friend is considering the Railways Board's closure proposal in the light of further information she has now received about alternative services. I cannot yet say what her decision will be.
