§ 80. Colonel ASHLEY
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions whether he is aware that there is a great demand among ex-Service men for motor vehicles, more especially such as are suitable for passenger or commercial hire; and whether, under the circumstances, he is prepared to grant special facilities to reputable organisations such as the War Motors Association for the purchase of such vehicles for distribution among those who require them in connection with their businesses?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of MUNITIONS (Mr. James Hope)
Arrangements were made in June last with the War Motors Association for the sale to them of motor vehicles, and facilities are afforded by this association to ex-Service men for the purchase of these vehicles. My hon. Friend will be glad to make similar arrangements with other approved organisations acting in the interests of ex-Service men.
§ Colonel ASHLEY
Do I understand from that that the Ministry of Munitions imagines that the War Motors Association is satisfied with the treatment they are receiving? Did not the Motors Association quite recently protest strongly against their treatment?
