HC Deb 05 February 1941 vol 368 c963W
Sir R. Gower

asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been called to the present prices of spare parts for motor cars; and if he can give any information as to whether a corner exists in these articles?

Lieut.-Colonel Moore-Brabazon

No, Sir. I have not had any representations made to me about the prices of motor car spares nor have I any reason for thinking that there is any cornering of supplies. If my hon. Friend has any information on these matters to which he thinks my attention should be drawn I would be glad to consider it, and if I am satisfied that excessive prices are being charged or that cornering exists, I shall not hesitate to use my powers of requisitioning.
