HC Deb 05 December 1983 vol 50 cc43-4W
Mr. Freeson

asked the Secretary of State for Transport how much underdeveloped land owned by British Rail is suitable for housing, showing where it is and the quantity in each case, with existing infrastructure services sufficient to allow development to proceed.

Mr. David Mitchell

The feasibility of particular forms of development, including house building, is established between the British Rail property board and the local planning authority as individual sites are prepared for disposal. I suggest that the right hon. Member contact the board for more detailed information.
