§ 56. Mr. T. SMITH
asked the Postmaster-General whether all motor vehicles now owned or controlled by his Department are of British manufacture?
§ Sir K. WOOD
All motor vehicles owned by the Post Office are of British manufacture, though 153 out 8,676 contain a small percentage of foreign components. All the principal mail contractors use vans of British manufacture. Precise particulars of the vehicles employed on the numerous minor contract mail services in the provinces are not available, but so far as I am aware such vehicles are mostly of British origin.
