HC Deb 15 November 1967 vol 754 c104W
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.
