HC Deb 26 November 1945 vol 416 c1030W
Sir W. Wakefield

asked the President of the Board of Trade the estimate of private and commercial vehicles, respectively, to be exported to U.S.A., South America, Europe, Russia, China, the Dominions, India and the Colonial Empire, respectively, during 1946.

Sir S. Cripps

It is not the intention to direct manufacturers' supplies to particular markets. The aim is an overall export of 33! per cent, for commercial vehicles and 50 per cent, for private cars. The figures of exports which this will give will depend upon the level to which the manufacturers can increase their production.
