HC Deb 28 November 1944 vol 404 c2431W
Mr. Rostron Duckworth

asked the Minister of Production whether any agreement has yet been reached with the American authorities as to the disposal of such military trucks and motor-cars as may be left in Great Britain and Europe at the close of European hostilities and which are not required any longer for military purposes, either in Europe or in the Far Eastern theatre of war.

Mr. Garro Jones

No, Sir. But we are in touch with both Dominion and Allied Governments. In this connection I would refer my hon. Friend to the White Paper on the plans for the disposal of Government Surplus Stores (Cmd. 6539), from paragraph 19 of which I quote the following extractIn the event of stores in the United Kingdom owned by Dominion or Allied Governments being disposed of here, His Majesty's Government will request the Governments concerned to make arrangements which conform io the principles set forth in this Paper.
