The Chairman stressed the necessity for the submission of further proposals for the introduction of diesel multiple units, particularly in respect of Manchester Schemes Parts 4, 5, and 6. It was noted that the re-appraisal of the financial results of these schemes was proceeding. Mr. Roberts stated that apart from the volume of work involved no special difficulty was being experienced except for the assessment of receipts from Parcels etc. traffic attributable to the schemes. Departmental meetings had been held in an effort to establish a satisfactory method of assessing these receipts, and a memorandum was being prepared setting out in full the difficulties experienced.
The Chairman said it was necessary for information in respect of parcels receipts to be included in future proposals and it was agreed that the memorandum be circulated for discussion at the next meeting. In the meantime, preparation of all necessary particulars for the proposals, other than parcels, should proceed without delay.
It was noted that investigation into the remainder of proposals still to be submitted was proceeding satisfactorily and Mr. Reynolds requested that special attention be given to the St.Pancras, Leicester, Nottingham scheme.
With regard to the Broad Street - Tring scheme, Mr. Stanley stated that information in respect of dual electric stock would be furnished shortly.
