HC Deb 21 January 1975 vol 884 c281W
Mr. Ron Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what are the practical difficulties involved in improving existing invalid vehicles mentioned in her answer of 13th December 1974, Official Report, c. 291.

Mr. Alfred Morris

To do so would require the complete stripping and rebuilding of every vehicle. Apart from the vast expense, the scale and complexity of the operation could not be accommodated within our existing repair and manufacturing arrangements, and many users would inevitably be deprived of mobility for long periods.
