HC Deb 27 May 1946 vol 423 c133W
84. Dr. Comyns

asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware that persons engaged in work of national importance find it impossible to obtain delivery of a new motor-car without being required to wait for many months; and, in view of the many complaints of inconvenience, whether he will consider reintroducing the priority system.

Mr. Barnes

I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given to the hon. Member for East Aberdeen (Mr. Boothby) on 18th March. Motor manufacturers have been reminded of the importance of giving preference especially to doctors and midwives.
