HC Deb 01 March 1920 vol 126 cc66-7W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions the number of motor lorries and steam lorries, classified in their various categories, which have been sold through the Disposals Board, and give the total sum realised by the sale of these vehicles; also the number of motor and steam lorries which are still under the control of his Department?


The total number of lorries disposed of up to the present time is 17,806, and the price realised is £7,239,159. The total number of lorries under the control of the Ministry of Munitions at the present time is 15,394. This figure includes the lorries under repair at Slough and those in Abbeville and Cologne, the sale of a considerable number of which is practically concluded. It has not been possible within the time available to obtain the figures in respect of other theatres abroad.
