§ Mr. Harry Greenway
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when he next expects to meet the chairman of British Rail to discuss British Rail's policy on sales of its land; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. David Mitchell
I have no immediate plans to do so. Our policy is for the railways board to dispose of all its surplus land and property as rapidly as possible at a proper commercial price. I discussed progress with the chairman of the British Rail Property Board in December.
