HC Deb 31 October 1957 vol 575 cc86-7W
83. Mr. Awbery

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many different types of motor cars and motor cycles are in use by the various police forces of the country; and if he has considered the use of a standard car and cycle for police purposes in order to effect a saving both to the Exchequer and local authorities.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I regret that the information for which the hon. Member asks is not readily available. The police need vehicles for a wide variety of purposes and I am advised that standardisation would be impracticable.
