asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware of the anxiety in Leicester and other places affected by the decison to close the Rugby to Leicester, London Road, line; and whether he will refer to the appropriate transport users' consultative committee the question of the provision of adequate alternative services for passengers who are dependent upon those facilities, before the present ones are removed.

In approving this closure the Transport Users' Consultative Committee for the East Midland Area and the Central Transport Consultative Committee took account of the alternative services which will be available, including the proposed new bus service between Rugby and Leicester.
