HC Deb 07 March 1966 vol 725 c450W
Mr. G. Campbell

asked the Minister of Transport what action the Government are now taking to enable the liner train system to operate fully.

Mr. John Morris

The Government have already approved the Railways Board's proposals for the introduction of liner trains on five routes. Two of these services are now in operation, although the terminals are at present used almost exclusively by railway-owned vehicles. The programme for extension of the liner train network and the introduction of open terminals is a matter for the Board in consultation with the Unions.
