HC Deb 22 October 1945 vol 414 c1836W
Major Conant

asked the Minister of War Transport what conditions an applicant has to fulfil in order to obtain a permit to acquire a surplus Service vehicle.

Mr. Barnes

Regional Transport Commissioners issue permits to acquire ex-Service goods vehicles up to the numbers available to applicants who satisfy them that they need a vehicle and that it is in the national interest that one should be allocated to them. Permits for reconditioned cars, issued from the Ministry headquarters in London, are at present available only to nurses, midwives and badly disabled ex-Servicemen.
