§ 77. Mr. S. O. Davies
asked the Minister of Transport what local authorities were consulted before she gave her consent to closures which took freight traffic from the railways on to the roads in the old industrial valleys in South Wales; and what assurances she obtained from the Railways Board regarding the re-employment of those railwaymen consequently displaced.
§ Mr. John Morris
My right hon. Friend's consent was not required. I understand that the railwaymen affected are being offered other jobs.
