HC Deb 18 July 1946 vol 425 c264W
Mr. Osborne

asked the Minister of Agriculture why, since it is his policy for essential home requirements of ploughs and tractors to have first priority, David Brown Tractors are exporting 65 per cent. of their production on the instuctions of his Department whilst British farmers have been waiting for as long as 12 months for delivery.

Mr. T. Williams

No such instructions have been given to David Brown Tractors. During the past nine months 13 per cent. of this firm's tractor output has gone for export.
