§ 31. Mr. Stainton
asked the Minister of Transport what was the rate of return on capital employed of British Railways catering and British transport hotels during the most recent annual period for which figures are available.
§ Mr. John Morris
The Railways Board inform me that the figure for hotels was about 6.8 per cent. in 1966. An equivalent rate for catering cannot be given but a net working surplus of£132,000 was made in that year on refreshment rooms and cars.
