HC Deb 03 March 1965 vol 707 cc240-1W
44. Mr. Maxwell

asked the Minister of Transport what is the estimated cost and completion date given to him by the British Railways Board in seeking his approval for sanction of capital expenditure for its Central Design Establishment at Derby.

Mr. Tom Fraser

I understand that the British Railways Board's proposals have not yet been formulated in sufficient detail for the information requested by my hon. Friend to be provided.

48. Mr. Maxwell

asked the Minister of Transport if he will give a general direction, in the public interest, to the British Railways Board not to combine all design establishments into a central one.

Mr. Swingler
