HC Deb 17 April 1973 vol 855 cc244-5
10. Sir J. Langford-Holt

asked the Minister of State for Defence why servicing facilities for lorries of a Dutch agricultural products marketing touring exhibition were provided by the Royal Air Force at High Wycombe; and whether similar facilities are available to the Milk Marketing Board and the Fat-stock Marketing Corporation.

Lord Lambton

I have found no evidence that servicing facilities were provided by the Royal Air Force at High Wycombe for the lorries referred to. I think I should explain to the House that this Question arose from a reporting error in the Shropshire Star. This referred to "RAF'' mechanics. It should have referred to "DAF" mechanics. DAF is a Dutch motor company The error was corrected in a later edition. It is hardly surprising that Dutch lorries should be helped by a Dutch motor company.
