Railway Stations: Easington

Volume 470: debated on Friday 25 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what plans she has to re-open rail stations at Horden, Easington and Blackhall in Easington constituency; and if she will make a statement. (182376)

We have no plans to re-open rail stations at Horden, Easington and Blackhall. It would be for the local authorities to propose and fund any new stations provided that they have a business case and if they consider that new stations are the best way of meeting local transport needs.
