HC Deb 26 January 1983 vol 35 cc469-70W
Mr. Murphy

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what consideration will be given to the views of commuter groups and individuals in Hertfordshire with regard to the findings of the Serpell report; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. David Howell

I will take account of all the views which are put to me in connection with the Serpell report.

Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to his reply on the Serpell report, which are the most extensive options proposed by that report for railway line closures which have been ruled out by the Government; and which options he regards as still being under consideration.

Mr. David Howell

The network options are purely illustrative. They are not proposals and are not seen as such by the Government. The Government will be considering the long-term future of the railway in the light of all the facts.
