HC Deb 07 July 1965 vol 715 cc239-40W
76. Mr. Buchanan

asked the Minister of Transport if, in view of the decisions of the Road Haulage Association to ignore the recommendation of the National Board for Prices and Incomes and to increase their charges by 5 per cent., he will reconsider his decision to operate liner trains from open terminals.

Mr. Tom Fraser

As my hon. Friend will be aware from developments reported since his Question was tabled, the Road Haulage Association have not ignored the recommendations of the National Board for Prices and Incomes. In any case I see no reason to reconsider my approval of investment on liner trains on the basis of operation from open terminals.
