HC Deb 17 January 1968 vol 756 cc574-5W
76. Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Minister of Transport whether she is aware that the British Railways Board is anticipating Parliamentary approval of Clause 45 of the Transport Bill by tendering for the supply of freight containers to firms other than those for which they are permitted to manufacture by the Transport Act, 1962; and if she will give a general direction to stop this.

Mr. John Morris:
