HC Deb 30 July 1964 vol 699 cc390-1W
85. Mr. F. Noel-Baker

asked the Minister of Transport what steps he now proposes to take to improve communications to Swindon, in view of the proposed new expansion of the town arising from the recent South-East study.

Mr. Marples

Present road plans include provision for substantially improved communications to Swindon, notably by connections to the planned extension of the M.4 motorway. It is too soon to say what might be the effect of detailed consideration of the suggestions made in the South-East Study.

The provision of railway services is a matter for the British Railways Board
