HC Deb 15 July 1946 vol 425 cc845-6
21. Mrs. Castle

asked the Minister of Supply whether he is aware that new motorcars which have only been run a few miles are being resold at exorbitant prices; and whether he will take steps to prevent this by prohibiting the resale of new motorcars within a year of their purchase at more than the price paid for them when new.

Mr. Wilmot

Yes, Sir. I understand that the Motor Trade Association is taking steps designed to prevent sales of this kind.
