HC Deb 08 December 1943 vol 395 c992W
Mr. A. Edwards

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport what is the percentage of empty vehicles running under Ministry direction since the Ministry took control and the corresponding figure for each of the previous three years?

Mr. Noel-Baker

I regret that the information for which my hon. Friend asks could not be obtained without the expenditure of a vast amount of labour, for which man-power is not available.
