HC Deb 06 December 1939 vol 355 cc627-8
18. Mr. Levy

asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been directed to the development of electric-battery vehicles, especially for delivery work in towns, not only as a means of saving petrol, but as an important contribution to the greater quietude, com- fort and health of the streets; whether he will take steps to stimulate such development; and, in particular, give all possible encouragement to any industrial initiative in this direction?

Captain Wallace

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given to him yesterday by my hon. Friend the Secretary for Mines. My right hon. Friend the Minister of Supply has a further question to-day on this subject.
