The present Government have stopped the policy of railway closures which was in operation previously, as the hon. Gentleman will be aware. Not only that, but they have injected substantial amounts into the railway system on an unparalleled scale. To take the London Transport system, there have been massive injections into the Underground in the form of rolling stock on a scale in excess of anything done by previous Governments.

Full consultations on any petrol rationing scheme will take place in respect of the details of the scheme, and obviously the problems of rural areas will be taken into account.
