§ Mr. Carmichael
The Railways Board seek my right hon. Friend's agreement to the disposal of land rendered surplus by the closure of lines and unless there is a possibility of future development which might necessitate its re-use, we always give this agreement. The Board then have every incentive to sell and they 85W need no directive from my right hon. Friend.
