§ 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.
