§ Mr. Luard
asked the Minister of Transport what is the composition of the Central Transport Consultative Committee; and why she has accepted the recommendations of this committee, in considering inconvenience to the public in Oxford, rather than those of the area committee which fully examined the question on the spot.
§ Mr. John Morris
The composition of the Committee is laid down in Section 56(2) of the Transport Act, 1962. The Members are listed below. It is the duty of the Central Committee to consider recommendations of an Area Committee and, where it appears to them to be 177W desirable, to make recommendations to my right hon. Friend. In the Oxford Station case the Central Committee felt that in view of the limited degree of hardship involved they would not be justified in asking for the downside entrance to be reopened. There is no reason to question their considered judgment.
The following is the information:—
