HC Deb 10 July 1941 vol 373 c309
47. Sir I. Albery

asked the Minister of Agriculture what complaints he has received of the lack of replacement fittings for much of the agricultural machinery purchased from Australia and the United States of America; and what steps are being taken to remedy this?

The Minister of Agriculture (Mr. R. S. Hudson)

I am not aware of any complaint of the lack of spare parts for Australian machinery. Adequate supplies of spare parts are available in this country for servicing all classes of Australian machines purchased by the Ministry and these stocks will be maintained. With regard to spares for American agricultural machinery, I am not aware of any evidence of actual shortage at the present time. Arrangements have also been made for the importation of spare parts for American machinery to supplement stocks already in the country, and I am informed that these supplies are now coming forward.
