881. GENERAL MATTERS OF POLICY  (Contd.)

1. Position of schemes still to be submitted

(b) St.Pancras - Leicester/Nottingham (Contd.)

The suitability of the Western Region vehicles, which included buffet car facilities, was still under examination, but as it was now uncertain whether or not these units would become available, it was agreed the compilation of the submission should proceed on the basis of the vehicles being provided from this Region's existing stock so that the ultimate profitability of the scheme should be precisely assessed.

(c) Chester - Rhyl - Llandudno

The financial details which were being prepared by the Chief Accountant in conjunction with the Director of Traffic Services preparatory to the submission of the scheme, were nearly complete.

(d) East Midlands
Derby Friargate - Nottingham Victoria - Grantham
Nottingham Mid. - Mansfield - Worksop
Derby Mid. - Sheffield Mid.

The financial details for the Nottingham - Mansfield - Worksop scheme would be completed and as the anticipated gross receipts of the proposed service do not fully cover its operational costs, the details have been furnished by the Director of Traffic Services to the Line Traffic Manager, Derby, to consider the future of the service.

For the remaining two services, the financial details are being prepared by the Chief Accountant, in conjunction with the Director of Traffic Services, and if, as anticipated, the schemes prove unremunerative, the future of these services will be considered by the Line Traffic Manager, Derby.

2.  Allocation of units being built at Derby and by Contractors

Revised schedule of allocation attached as Appendix 'B'.
