HC Deb 10 November 1980 vol 992 c51W
22. Mr. Adley

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what progress has been made in attempts to rescue and preserve the remaining steam engines at Barry, as part of the national heritage.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

A working party was set up recently by the National Railway Museum to advise on whether any of the steam locomotives remaining in Barry yard might still warrant preservation or provide valuable spare parts. I understand that the working party will visit Barry on 21 November, and that my hon. Friend will accompany it. I am sure that his considerable knowledge and experience will be of great value.
