HC Deb 05 November 1945 vol 415 cc903-4
78. Mr. John Foster

asked the Minister of War Transport whether he will consider granting permits for reconditioned motor cars to doctors demobilised from the Services in view of the fact that many of these doctors find that the price of new motor cars is beyond their means.

The Minister of War Transport (Mr. Barnes)

The present limited supply of these vehicles falls far short of the number of very deserving applications from disabled ex-Servicemen, nurses and mid-wives, for whom they are being reserved, and I regret therefore that I cannot adopt this suggestion.

Mr. Henderson Stewart

Will the right hon. Gentleman consult the Secretary of State for War to see whether there are any spare motor cars?
