§ Mr. Gower
Will my right hon. and learned Friend look at this again? Is he aware that at many of the motorway stations in England the services to the motorists are terribly inadequate? Recently I found it impossible to get upper cylinder lubricant, and it is almost impossible to persuade the people at these stations to do even elementary things like checking tyres or washing windscreens. The services are inadequate. Indeed, if one is faced with a serious engineering job they are simply not available.
§ Mr. Thomas
In view of what my hon. Friend has said I will look at it again, but I am told that experience in England has shown that the needs of motorway traffic 10 are usually met adequately by the provision of emergency repair and breakdown recovery facilities at motorway service areas.
