HC Deb 03 August 1965 vol 717 c292W
Mr. Rowland

asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware that prices of 10d. and 11d. are charged for cups of coffee at self-service cafeterias on the M.1 motorway; and if he will seek to ensure that more reasonable prices are charged when the leases of service area operators are granted or renewed.

Mr. Tom Fraser

These prices are related to the quantity of coffee supplied and reflect the fact that some facilities are available to the public 24 hours per day. I have no evidence to show that they are unreasonable.
