§ 52. Mr. ALBERY
asked the Postmaster-General if he will state, of the 2,950 road transport vehicles in the Post Office fleet, how many are of British manufacture and, of the 600 added during the last year, how many are of British manufacture?
§ Mr. LEES-SMITH
As regards the first part of the question I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to the hon. Member for Newcastle-on-Tyne North (Sir N. Grattan-Doyle) on the 24th of June. Of the vehicles purchased or ordered during the last 12 months 100 have been of 80 per cent. British manufacture and 512 wholly British manufacture.
