§ Mr. Coldrick
asked the Minister of Supply and of Aircraft Production if his attention has been called to a hold-up in deliveries of Austin 10 cwt. vans caused by shortage of certain body parts; and if he can do anything to assist output of completed vehicles.
§ Mr. Wilmot
I was not aware of any hold-up in deliveries of Austin 10 cwt. vans, but my inquiries show that there has been some difficulty in obtaining balanced supplies of body parts. This position is not, however, peculiar to Austin's and has not seriously affected the company's output. If my hon. Friend will let me have details of any particular shortages, I will do all I can to help.
