HC Deb 24 October 1939 vol 352 c1236W
Sir R. Gower

asked the Secretary of State for War whether his officials, in requisitioning vehicles, will abstain from taking the single van owned by a small firm instead of drawing on the vehicles of firms which possess a number of the same kind?

Mr. Hore-Belisha

Now that the pressure is lessened, orders have been issued that such single vehicles are not to be taken.
