HC Deb 13 May 1946 vol 422 cc140-1W
76. Sir P. Hannon

asked the Minister of Supply whether in view of widespread complaint of the bad condition of motor cars used in various branches of the public services and now offered for sale by auction at various centres, he will take steps to have such motor cars as still remain unsold, inspected, cleaned and saved from further deterioration.

Mr. Wilmot:

All practicable steps are taken to protect the vehicles, but I am sure that the best way to save them from further deterioration is to concentrate on quick disposal, both through the trade scheme and by auction, and that is what I am doing.
