84. Sir G. de Freitas

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that in 1939 approximately 61,000 new goods vehicles were registered in this country and in 1964 approximately 230,000; and what were the approximate corresponding figures for Northamptonshire, excluding Northampton.

Mr. Tom Fraser

No figure is available for 1939, but the number for 1938 was 265, compared with 68,000 for Great Britain, and that for 1964 was 1,584.
