HC Deb 14 November 1977 vol 939 c46W
40. Mr. Walter Johnson

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what recent discussions he has had with the Chairman of British Railways on transport links between Great Britain and the Republic of Ireland; and what proposals have been made to him and which are anticipated in connection with closures.

Mr. William Rodgers

None. The Transport Users Consultative Committee for Wales has recommended that I should not intervene in the Board's proposal to close its freight shipping service between Fishguard and Waterford. I am not aware of other proposals for closures affecting links between the two countries.
