§ Mr. HUNT
asked the Under-Secretary for War whether complaints have been received that the War Office refuses to accept for ambulance purposes any cars except those of the three makes, Daimler, Wolseley, and Sunbeam; and, if so, can he say what objection there is to accepting first-class cars of French and Belgian make for use in those countries?437W
§ Mr. TENNANT
The purchase of motor ambulances, by the War Department has not been confined to those manufactured by the firms named. In addition, the Red Cross have given us cars of many different makes. On account of the difficulty of the provision, and more especially of the distribution, of spare, parts, the multiplication of the number of types of mechanical transport vehicles is to be deprecated.
