§ Mr. Norman Fowler
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what consultations took place between himself and the Chairman of the British Railways Board concerning fares policy for the rest of 1976; and whether he will make a statement.
§ Dr. Gilbert
The board informed me of its conclusions following a recent reappraisal of its pricing policy for 1976. I advised the chairman that the Government were content with the action proposed in their announcement of 19th May.
