HC Deb 03 March 1920 vol 126 c457W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions if it is intended to remove about 50 horse vehicles suitable for agricultural purposes from Carrickfergus government and military stores, where they are now lying, to Dublin for sale by auction; and, if so, why the extra cost of removal is being incurred in view of the demand for these vehicles by the agricultural community around Carrickfergus?


It is intended to remove 32 horse vehicles from Carrickfergus to Dublin for sale there by auction. From previous experience it is anticipated that the cost of removal will be small in comparison with the greatly increased prices which are likely to be realised by the sale of these vehicles in Dublin.
