HC Deb 14 May 1941 vol 371 cc1201-2
33. Mr. David Adams

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport whether he is aware that many professional and other citizens continue to use large high-powered motor-cars, which could, with equal efficiency, be replaced by low-power motor cars; and whether, as in the national interest many users have voluntarily made this change, he will now make it obligatory for this to be done in all appropriate cases?

facts? Would he not consider the matter from a fresh angle?

Mr. Lyons

Is my right hon. and gallant Friend aware that the industry were never able to fix the value of second hand motor cars because of variations in the amount of use?

Colonel Llewellin

That, of course, is true. There have to be variations in the prices on motor dealers' lists, which are only rough average prices.
