HC Deb 15 July 1946 vol 425 cc842-3
10. Mr. Edelman

asked the Minister of Supply whether he expects to reach his target figures for the production of 370,000 private motor cars and 150,000 commercial vehicles for the year 1946.

Mr. Wilmot

Actual production of private cars during the first five months of this year, together with forecasts for the rest of the year, suggest that the outcome will not be far short of the target. There is, at present, no reason to suggest that the target of 150,000 commercial vehicles will not be reached.

Mr. Gammans

What about the 370,000 private motorcars? Would the Minister say whether that figure is likely to be reached?

Mr. Wilmot

I have just replied to that question.
