§ Mr. Andrew F. Bennett
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport whether he has had any approach from British Railways to withdraw its passenger service from Manchester Victoria to Stockport via Miles Platting, Denton and Reddish, south; and whether such a service will be maintained after 15 May.
§ Mr. Portillo
We have received no such proposal. The timetabling and routing of services are entirely a matter for the board.
