HC Deb 16 June 1965 vol 714 c74W
45. Mr. Bence

asked the Minister of Transport what applications have been made to him by British Railways for the expansion of road haulage services at goods depots; and what action he has taken.

Mr. Tom Fraser

The Railways Board are not at present expanding their road haulage fleet: but I have just received, and am considering, their proposals for modernising it with some 5,500 new vehicles.
