HC Deb 18 July 1979 vol 970 c746W
31. Mr. David Clark

asked the Minister of Transport if, in order to allow proper consideration to be given to the effects on public transport of the rise in fuel prices, he will issue a general direction to British Railways to prevent them from closing any railway stations until a proper evaluation of the situation has been made.

Mr. Fowler

No. Passenger station closures are already subject to adequate statutory controls.
