HC Deb 29 July 1952 vol 504 cc121-2W
Colonel Clarke

asked the Minister of Works what reduction in the number of vehicles and personnel has been made in the official car service since it has been transferred to his Department; and what is the number of cars now in the pool.

Mr. Eccles

My right hon. Friend the Prime Minister informed the House on 15th July that since the official car service was transferred to my Department 75 civilian cars had been given up and that the headquarters of the Service Departments in London had returned 41 Service cars to their units, leaving 576 cars in the Government Car Service.

The corresponding reductions in personnel are 104 civilian drivers and 41 Service drivers.
