§ Dr. Gilbert
The London Rail Study published in November 1974 recommended that a London Rail Advisory Committee be set up. GLC declared its support in December 1975. Department of the Environment officials are discussing with the GLC and other parties concerned the terms of reference and other arrangements, and we hope to make a joint announcement soon.
