HC Deb 26 July 1967 vol 751 cc149-50W
79. Mr. Fowler

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in publishing the monthly car registration figures, she will break them down by model and make, as is the practice in most other countries.

Mr. John Morris

This information is already made available by the Department to the motor manufacturers and concessionaires concerned through a scheme operated by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders. Since particulars of models and makes relate to the business of individual undertakings, it would not be the practice in this country for the figures to be published without the consent of the firms concerned.
