(b)which has been referred to the committee by the Secretary of State or by the Company or the Board; or

(c)which appears to the committee to be a matter to which consideration ought to be given;

and copies of the minutes, conclusions and recommendations of the committee shall be sent to the Company and the Board and to the central committee (as defined in section 56 of the said Act of 1962).

(3)Nothing in subsection (2) above shall entitle the London Regional Passengers' Committee to consider the charges made for any service or facility, or to consider any question relating to the discontinuance or reduction of railway services.

(b)Upon receipt of such notice the Secretary of State shall consider, having consulted the London Regional Passengers' Committee and such other persons or bodies as he may think fit, what measures, if any, he should in all the circumstances take.
