Sir W. Smithers

asked the Minister of Supply and of Aircraft Production if he can give an estimate of the number of motor vehicles under the control of the Government that are now laid up.

Mr. Leonard

The number of double-track vehicles which are laid up and under the control of the Ministries of Supply and Aircraft Production is approximately 50,000. I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to the hon. Member for Newark (Mr. S. Shephard) on 15th October [Official Report: Vol. 414, No. 16, c. 709/10] and in particular to paragraph 6 of that reply.
