HC Deb 12 February 1946 vol 419 cc76-7W
Mr. Ward

asked the Minister of Supply and of Aircraft Production whether his attention has been called to the recent destruction of heavy lorries at a dump at Worcester; what was the average mileage which these lorries had done; and what steps had been taken to find purchasers for them.

Mr. Wilmot

No heavy lorries have been scrapped at this depot. Some 15 cwt. lorries of very special military type were scrapped because both we and their manufacturers considered that they had no civilian use. These scrappings have, however, now been stopped and we are re-examining the possibility of disposing of them as vehicles.
