HC Deb 29 July 1975 vol 896 cc475-6W
Mr. Body

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will specify any EEC regulation that prohibits or restricts the power of local authorities to grant a subsidy for a railway service.

Dr. Gilbert

EEC Regulations 1191/ 69, 1192/69 and 1107/70 set out the provisions under which railway undertakings may receive financial aids. They contain no prohibitions or restrictions which are applicable only to local authorities.
