HC Deb 05 February 1964 vol 688 c150W
55. Sir C. Osborne

asked the Minister of Transport if, in view of the now accepted danger of contracting lung cancer through smoking, he will give a general direction, in the public interest, to the British Railways Board to provide more non-smoking compartments; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Marples

No. The proportion of non-smoking compartments in trains is a matter for the British Railways Board to decide.
