§ 77. Sir J. Maitland
asked the Minister of Transport whether the revised proposals for the Peterborough-Grimsby line and its feeder lines, which he has asked British Rail to produce, will be subject to the normal procedure under the Transport Act, 1962; and whether in the event of objections the Transport Users' Consultative Committee will be asked to consider them.
§ Mr. Tom Fraser
Until I have seen the nature and scope of these proposals I cannot say definitely what the next steps will be. If, as seems unlikely, new proposals for closure were included, they would have to be published under the Act and users would be able to lodge objections with the Committee, who would then report to me on the hardship they might cause.
In any event it is most probable that I would wish to ask the Consultative Committee for a further report before I make my final decision.
