HC Deb 12 June 1945 vol 411 c1486W
Sir J. Lucas

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport if he can state the policy with regard to the release of second-hand Army motor vehicles for the general public.

Mr. P. Thorneycroft

In the case of cars, certificates to purchase the small number available are issued by my Department according to need, to applicants who are engaged in essential work. Certificates to purchase goods vehicles are issued on a similar basis by the Regional Transport Commissioners.
