§ 12. Mr. P. Noel-Baker
asked the Minister of Transport how many houses owned by British Railways have been sold by them since 1st January, 1959.
§ Mr. Marples
The Railways Board tell me that central classified records of property sales have been kept only since the beginning of 1961, and that to distinguish house sales in earlier years from68W sales of other property would involve a disproportionate amount of work. Since the beginning of 1961 the Board have sold 1,662 houses.
