HC Deb 01 May 1950 vol 474 c147W
2 and 3. Mr. Baird

asked the Minister of Supply (1) how many motor-omnibuses were exported from this country in 1949; and what the programme is for 1950;

(2) what proportion of the motor-omnibus production of this country is allocated to the home market.

Mr. G. R. Strauss

In 1949 approximately 3,000 passenger service vehicles, including chassis, were exported. A fixed proportion of output has not been allocated to the home market in 1950. Manufacturers have been given quotas which provide for the supply of 8,800 vehicles to the home market during the year and have been asked to export the balance of their output.
