HC Deb 22 March 1935 vol 299 c1484W

asked the Home Secretary how much it is costing per week for the Scotland Yard authorities to hire cars for the purpose of trapping motorists; and whether it would be cheaper to buy cars instead of hiring them?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Clitheroe (Sir W. Brass) on the 18th instant. The question of buying as against hiring is being carefully watched, but the comparative advantages cannot at present be finally determined.
