HC Deb 31 January 1949 vol 460 c191W
5. Mr. Janner

asked the Minister of Supply to what extent more cars will be available to the home market in the near future.

Mr. G. R. Strauss

I regret it is not at present possible to increase the supply of cars to the home market.

Mr. Walker-Smith

asked the Minister of Supply whether he is aware of the shortage of light delivery vans for essential purposes in the home market; and what steps he proposes to take to alleviate this shortage.

Mr. G. R. Strauss

Yes; but the supply of vans to the home market could only be increased at the cost of reducing exports and the economic situation makes this undesirable.
