HC Deb 06 December 1971 vol 827 cc229-30W
Mr. Barry Jones

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he proposes to continue to provide grant aid for the Wrexham-New Brighton/Birkenhead railway service; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Peyton

The Railway Board's applications for the renewal of grant for this service and others are now being studied. I shall make a general statement early next year.
