HC Deb 07 June 1939 vol 348 cc421-2W
Sir H. Morris-Jones

asked the Minister of Transport whether he can state the order of priority of transport sanctioned by the Traffic Commissioners in the event of an emergency?

hand-produced in each year since 1925 in the coalfield of Yorkshire?

Mr. Lloyd

The information is as follows:

Captain Wallace

I do not think it would be wise to lay down any exact and rigid order of priority, as circumstances are likely to vary greatly at different times and in different localities. Defence requirements and transport of foodstuffs must clearly be of special importance.
