HC Deb 23 January 1951 vol 483 cc2-3
3. Mr. Anthony Greenwood

asked the Minister of Pensions what is the cost to his Department of each garage supplied for the housing of an all-weather tricycle.

Mr. Isaacs

The cost to my Department varies according to the individual circumstances and I will, with my hon. Friend's permission, write and give some details.

Mr. Greenwood

Could my right hon. Friend satisfy himself that his Department is doing everything possible to get value for money, as some of these structures are very shoddy indeed?

Mr. Isaacs

So far as I am aware, my Department are doing the best they can for the pensioners, and if there are any cases of inferior materials being provided I shall be glad to have particulars, and to look into them.

Mr. Wood

Can the Minister say how many garages have been supplied compared with the number of all-weather tricycles?

Mr. Isaacs

Not without notice.
