Noted that Messrs.Randle, Gould, Baker and Varley had jointly reported on the request from the D.T.S. for 29 of the 50 (MC + DT) units in the 1960 programme for the Nottingham - Leicester and old G.C. lines to be altered to MC + MC units, thereby enabling the Manchester Part 3 scheme to be completed earlier and for the 1961 requirements to be adjusted accordingly. The joint report recommends the proposal at an estimated increased cost of £197,200, and a recommendation has been put to the C.M.E. (Central Staff) who is arranging for a submission to be made to the Works & Equipment Committee seeking authority for the additional expenditure.
The C.M.E. has stated that justifications for the additional expenditure will have to be made in submitting the schemes affected.
