asked the Minister of Transport whether he has yet received a report from the Central Transport Users' Advisory Committee on the proposals of the British Transport Commission to discontinue the Sunday passenger railway services between King's Lynn and Hunstanton on Sundays from November to March in each year.

I understand that in the light of the recommendation of the Area Transport Users' Consultative Committee the British Transport Commission has decided not to proceed with its proposals.

I thank my hon. Friend for that reply. His proposal will avoid two towns of the size of Hunstanton and King's Lynn having their rail communication with each other cut on Sundays during the winter, which would have been very serious for us.
