HC Deb 20 December 1967 vol 756 c409W
66. Sir H. Harrison

asked the Minister of Transport what is the estimated loss for each the next three years for British Railways sundries service.

Mr. John Morris:

The Transport Bill, now before the House, provides for the National Freight Corporation to take over the railways sundries services. Much will depend on the Corporation's success in reducing the losses on the service, which are currently running at an annual rate of something under £25 million, but which are already being reduced by the rationalisation measures put in hand by the Railways Board.
