HC Deb 11 June 1947 vol 438 c124W
Mr. E. P. Smith

asked the Minister of Supply how many ex-Army vehicles are awaiting disposal in dumps in this country; and what steps he is taking to ensure that such of them as are suitable for adaptation to farming use are made available to the agricultural purchaser.

Mr. Wilmot

About 30,000 double-track vehicles are at present awaiting disposal. The vehicles are normally sold at auctions in various parts of the country which are brought to the notice of farmers by advertisements in farming journals.
