§ Mr. G. Campbell
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what consideration has now been given by his Department to the recommendation of the Technical Committee on the Cairngorms that a passenger rail link should be opened between Aviemore and Grantown-on-Spey; and what has been the result.
§ Mr. Ross
Any question of the rein-statement by British Rail of passenger services between Aviemore and Grantown-on-Spey would be a matter for consideration by them. I understand, however, that the Highlands and Islands Development Board is considering whether the line could be reopened on a private basis as a tourist attraction.
