HC Deb 18 December 1972 vol 848 c249W
45. Mr. Denzil Davies

asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether he will ask the Welsh Council to include in its study of transport in Wales an examination of means whereby more heavy goods and freight can be carried by the railways.

Mr. Peter Thomas

The Welsh Council's research project is concerned with the passenger transport needs of Wales. It is for the council itself to decide whether to undertake any additional study of freight transport.
