HC Deb 02 February 1970 vol 795 c59W
Rear-Admiral Morgan-Giles

asked the Minister of Transport what research work is in progress under the auspices of his Department concerning the installation of de-icing equipment for railway points.

Mr. Albert Murray

The Department is not directly sponsoring any research into this. But the British Railways Board tell me that they are undertaking work at the Railway Technical Centre at Derby to improve existing techniques for keeping points free of ice.
