HC Deb 10 February 1965 vol 706 c97W
Mr. Longbottom

asked the Minister of Transport if, when appointing the next Chairman of the Railways Board, he will give prime consideration to those who have spent their working lives in the service of British Railways.

Mr. Tom Fraser

I shall certainly take suitable railway experience into account. But I must give prime consideration to finding the best man for the job, whether within the railway service or not.
