HC Deb 05 November 1945 vol 415 c908
91. Mr. Quintin Hogg

asked the Minister of Supply and Aircraft Production how many of the 51,600 vehicles which have been passed to industry for disposal to the public through trade channels have, in fact, come into the hands of members of the public through those channels.

Mr. Wilmot

The 51,600 vehicles referred to have been passed to industry over a period of more than four years, and I have not the figures of disposals by the trade for which the hon. Member asks.

Mr. Hogg

Is the Minister satisfied with the number of vehicles of this class now in the hands of the public, and is he taking any steps to increase the number?

Mr. Wilmot

The number is being rapidly increased, and we are doing everything we can to urge it forward.
