HC Deb 14 June 1955 vol 542 c407
23. Mr. Gough

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will consult with the British Transport Commission and the Tourist and Holidays Board with a view to the introduction this summer of car-carrying facilities on express trains between London and Scotland in order to encourage the tourist industry.

Mr. J. Stuart

I understand that the British Transport Commission is proposing to introduce this summer a special twice-weekly service between King's Cross and Perth for the carriage of cars and their passengers.

Mr. Ian Harvey

Under existing conditions, might it not be better to have a few train-carrying cars?

Mr. John MacLeod

What will the charges be for carrying cars in these circumstances?

Mr. Stuart

I was not asked that question and have not the information.
