HC Deb 20 March 1968 vol 761 c93W
Mr. Michael Heseltine

asked the Minister of Transport how many car parks are at present owned and operated by the Railways Board, the London Transport Board, the Docks Board, the Waterways Board and the Transport Holding Company, respectively.

Mr. John Morris

I am informed by the four Boards that each has provided car parks for people using its transport services. The number of such car parks currently owned and operated by the Boards is as folows:

  • British Railways Board: 1,408 (some are operated by lessees).
  • London Transport Board: 65.
  • British Transport Docks Board: 13 (Including 1 under construction).
  • British Waterways Board: 7.

The Transport Holding Company does not own and operate car parks and I understand that it is not the general practice of its subsidiary, companies to do so.
