To ask the Secretary of State for Transport (1) what proposals he is considering in respect of an alternative public transport service between Epping and Ongar should London Transport close this part of the Central line; and if he will make a statement;(2) if he will make a statement on the current situation in respect of the Central line service between Epping and Ongar.

On 5 May 1993, London Underground Ltd. published notice of its intention to seek closure of the Central line between Epping and Ongar. Due to the Secretary of State's quasi-judicial role in the closure proceedings, it would not be appropriate for me to make any comments on the subject at this stage.
