HC Deb 31 July 1974 vol 878 c304W
Mr. Bradley

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what investment ceilings he has authorised the National Freight Corporation to provide for Freightliners Ltd. for 1974–75 and 1975–76; if he is satisfied that these will be adequate to ensure the necessary development of this service; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Mulley

My right hon. Friend does not set investment ceilings for Freightliners Ltd.—this is done by the National Freight Corporation, within total amounts approved for it. NFC's investment levels for 1974–75 were set by the previous administration in December 1973. No decisions have yet been made on the corporation's investment ceilings for 1975–76.
