§ 28. Sir Joseph Leech
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will request his economic advisers to ascertain whether the diversity of styles, types and sizes of motor-vehicles for private use creates an avoidable factor of national economic waste; and to report whether the amalgamation of motor manufacturing firms and the elimination of unnecessary variations of pattern, followed by expansion of the motor mass-production policy, would strengthen the national economic structure?
§ Mr. Stanley
A highly technical question of this kind is, I think, best considered by the motor industry itself, but 732 I should be willing to give any help I could in any investigation they decided to undertake.
