§ 26. Mr. Douglas Marshall
asked the President of the Board of Trade how many 10 cwt. vans have been delivered to United Kingdom purchasers during the period commencing July, 1945, and ending January, 1947; and how many vans of a like nature have been exported.
§ Sir S. Cripps
The number of 10 cwt. commercial vehicles produced for civilian use from July, 1945, to January, 1947, was 21,470 for the home market and 8,675 for export.
§ Mr. Marshall
Is the Minister aware that this is causing great hardship to our farmers and will he give consideration to allowing a greater number of these vans to be purchased by them?
