HC Deb 28 June 1920 vol 131 cc11-2
18. Mr. LAWSON

asked the Minister of Transport whether requisitions for the use of motor vehicles from other Govern- ment Departments specify the use to which such vehicles will be put; and what method is adopted to see that the use of these vehicles is not abused?


Requisitions for the use of motor vehicles state the name of the official for which the vehicle is required, but do not usually give particulars as to journeys unless long journeys are involved. A Report is made by the Ministry to the Accounting Officer of the Department concerned in all cases in which there appears to be any element of doubt as to whether the use of the vehicle falls strictly within the Treasury Regulations.
