HC Deb 31 January 1929 vol 224 c1157W

asked the Postmaster-General how many Ford motor mail-vans are in use or are at present on order for the Post Office; and how many of these are of American manufacture?

Viscount WOLMER

The Post Office owns 961 Ford motor mail vans. In four of these, which were recently purchased for experimental purposes, the chassis are of American manufacture, but the bodies were built in this country. The remainder are almost entirely of British manufacture. There are no Ford vans on order.
