HC Deb 17 December 1947 vol 445 c359W
Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Minister of Supply whether in co-operation with other Departments and the trade, he has been able to arrange for the designing and production in this country of heavy tractors suitable for all purposes and at all altitudes in tropical and semi-tropical Colonies.

Mr. G. R. Strauss

Proposals for the development of a heavy tractor are still being examined in conjunction with manufacturers, but I regret that it has not so far proved possible to arrange for production of this type of tractor.
