HC Deb 17 June 1966 vol 729 c349W
Mr. William Price

asked the Minister of Transport on what date closure of the line between Dearne Junction and Mexborough West was authorised; and on what date part of the track was first r moved.

Mrs. Castle

Consent to the closure of this section of line to passenger services was given on 20th April, 1966. Part of the track was removed last year prior to the consent in connection with major engineering works. Passengers were not affected by the consequent diversion of trains, which took place on the basis that it was a provisional arrangement rending a decision on the formal closure proposal.
