asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he was consulted regarding the future of the railways in Scotland; if so, by whom; and what advice he gave.

Mr. Gregor Mackenzie

I refer my hon, Friend to Chapters 7 and 12 of the Consultation Document "Transport Policy" published on 13th April by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Environment. That document represents the outcome of a comprehensive review by the Government of transport policy as a whole, including railways, in which my Department participated.
