HC Deb 24 July 1963 vol 681 c177W
52. Mr. MacDermot

asked the Minister of Transport what general directions he has given in the public interest to the London Transport Board regarding invitations to the Railways Board to tender for the manufacture of passenger rolling stock.

Mr. Marples

None. The responsibility for deciding from whom to invite tenders and where to place orders is essentially a matter of management for the London Transport Board.
