HC Deb 14 July 1919 vol 118 cc23-4
47. Lieut. - Colonel W. GUINNESS

asked the Prime Minister how many Government motor cars are allotted to the use of His Majesty's Ministers; and what is the annual cost to the public?


The answer to the first part of the question is seventeen. As regards the last part of the question, it is not possible to analyse the accounts in such a way as to give the information asked for. As I stated in answer to a question last week, there has already been a considerable reduction in the number of cars in use in Government Departments, and I hope to be able shortly—probably next week—to inform the House of the way in which this matter will be dealt with.
