§ Mr. Grenfell
asked the Minister of Supply whether he is prepared to release the materials necessary for the production on a substantial scale of vehicles propelled by electric batteries, since this 675W would mean a considerable saving in oil imports and shipping?
§ Mr. Burgin
I shall of course be prepared to give careful and sympathetic consideration to any application for materials for the production of electrically-propelled vehicles. Such an application would require consideration in relation to the requirements of materials for other purposes and the circumstances existing at the time when it was made.
