HC Deb 22 January 1942 vol 377 c450W
Mr. Bower

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport whether he can make any statement on the reception of his pooling of trade transport scheme; the form it is eventually to take after consideration by trades' representatives; the areas to which it will he applied; and the date on which it will be brought into operation?

Colonel Llewellin

There is every indication that retailers will co-operate wholeheartedly in the Government's proposals for economy in retail deliveries. The schemes may vary from place to place as we intend traders to work out the form of organisation best suited to the local conditions. Schemes will be made, wherever practicable, throughout the country and will be brought into operation as soon as ready.
