HC Deb 14 July 1958 vol 591 c61W
4. Mr. Awbery

asked the Minister of Supply to what repair depots, Government or private, is the work previously or now being done by the Bristol Commercial Vehicles, Company being transferred; what is to be done with this plant and equipment which recently gave employment to 400 men; and to what use they are to be put.

Mr. W. J. Taylor

The much reduced volume of vehicle repair work now carried out by Bristol Commercial Vehicles, Limited at the Kingswood depot will be progressively transferred in the course of the next six months to Central Motor Transport Repair depots at Weston-super-Mare and Blackpool. The necessary plant and equipment will be similarly transferred and any surplus items will be sold.
