HC Deb 22 June 1964 vol 697 c32W
Mr. Owen

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if the experiment on Customs patrol cars is now complete; and whether the two motor cycle patrols in Northumberland will have cars before next winter.

Mr. Green

The experiments on patrol cars for Customs' coast preventive men are not yet complete. As was explained on 10th March in reply to an earlier question by the hon. Member, the experiments are expected to be completed about the beginning of next year. When the results are known, I will let the hon. Member know whether the two patrols in Northumberland are to have cars instead of motor cycles.
