HC Deb 27 May 1968 vol 765 cc156-7W
34. Lord Hamilton

asked the Minister of Technology what steps he proposes to take to encourage the development of standardised containers to operate in conjunction with road, rail, sea and air services.

Mr. Fowler

The Department has assisted the British Standards Institution in preparing specifications for general-purpose freight containers used in transport services. These comply with recommendations of the International Organisation for Standardisation. I propose to support the extension of such standards to other types of container.
