HC Deb 26 April 1972 vol 835 cc282-3W
49. Mr. J. H. Osborn

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he is satisfied with the progress being made in response to his request for the redevelopment of British Rail's surplus land; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Peyton

In the past three years sales of surplus land by British Railways have totalled some £36 million. The Board is aware of the urgent need for more land for housing.
