HC Deb 08 March 1967 vol 742 c294W
103. Mr. Ledger

asked the Minister of Transport how many rail closures have taken place in the two years to the end of December, 1966; and what financial saving this represents, taking into account the cost or estimated cost of providing alternative transport.

Mr. John Morris

In 1965 and 1966, 110 passenger services were withdrawn or modified and 29 individual passenger stations were closed. This represents a net annual financial improvement of about £7½ million.
