HC Deb 01 February 1945 vol 407 c1630
56. Mr. Turton

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware of the difficulty farmers in Yorkshire are experiencing in their efforts to obtain Ford-son tractors; and whether he will take the necessary steps to augment the distribution to this county.

Mr. Hudson

I am not aware of any special difficulty in Yorkshire. All counties have outstanding applications for Fordson tractors and supplies are allotted in proportion to these. Yorkshire has thus had equal treatment with other counties.

Mr. Turton

Is there a great shortage of Fordson tractors for this work, or is it true that there is a great surplus?

Mr. Hudson

I am not aware of any surplus.
