HC Deb 08 March 1967 vol 742 c290W
51. Mr. Peter Walker

asked the Minister of Transport whether it is her policy to increase the size of the transport fleet of the British Railways to a level which would make them independent of private hauliers for the servicing of line-train terminals.

Mrs. Castle

The Railways Board's policy, with which I am in full agreement, is to provide sufficient road vehicles to deal with the volume of freightliner traffic requiring collection and delivery by its own fleet.
