Following the Transport Act 1962 the administrative divisions in the Ministry of Transport responsible for dealing with the various sections of the public sector transport industries were reorganised and Nationalised Transport Divisions A and B were formed. The former had responsibility for certain aspects of nationalised rail and road undertakings, including British Rail's manpower and labour relations, pay and pensions, property issues, health and welfare legislation and the Transport Holding Company. The latter dealt with inland waterways (public and private legislation affecting the waterways and relations with British Waterways Board).
