HC Deb 12 December 1977 vol 941 c35W
Mr. Norman Fowler

asked the Secretary of State for Transport how much British Railways pays out each year on advertising; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. William Rodgers

The average annual expenditure by the British Railways Board on advertising the services it provides has been about £4.6 million. The level of this expenditure is a matter for the commercial judgment of the Board.
