HC Deb 25 June 1984 vol 62 c338W
Sir Raymond Gower

asked the Secretary of State for Wales when he will provide some parking and picnic areas along the M4 motorway in Wales.

Mr. John Stradling Thomas

Picnic areas can sometimes be provided as part of service areas, as at Pont Abraham, but it is for the private sector to exercise its commercial judgment and come forward with proposals for development as it sees fit.
