HC Deb 26 July 1961 vol 645 c51W
Mr. Ellis Smith

asked the Minister of Transport on what date he gave capital sanction for the construction of the new Stoke railway goods centre; and what applications he has had for capital sanction to extend the new centre or to build another.

Mr. Marples

The British Transport Commission informs me that this project was authorised by it on 18th December, 1958. At that date individual projects were not submitted to me for approval. I have received no applications for authority to extend this railway goods centre or to build another.
