HC Deb 12 March 1919 vol 113 cc1302-3W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions whether he is aware that orders for new road rollers have been blocked in the Priority Department; whether this is with a view of enabling the municipal authorities to purchase second-hand rollers from the Army and prevent private commercial firms getting back into business; and, if so, whether he will see that the block is removed?


The Regulations regarding priority of work were almost entirely suspended by the Order of the 7th February, 1919, and there is now no necessity for a firm wishing to manufacture new road-rollers to make, any application to the Priority Department.
