HC Deb 18 July 1946 vol 425 cc261-2W
95. Mr. M. MacMillan

asked the Minister of Supply if he is aware that owners of vehicles on essential work are unable to obtain shock-absorbers for motor-cars; and if he will take steps to make these spare parts available, especially for vehicles which have to be used in conditions such as rough-surfaced roads in which springs are frequently broken.

Mr. Woodburn

There is at present a shortage of shock absorbers, but supplies are increasing. I was not aware that any vehicles engaged on essential work were immobilised on this account, but if my hon. Friend has any particular case in mind and will let me have details, I will do all I can to help.
