HC Deb 12 May 1983 vol 42 c442W
Mr. Race

asked the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to his reply to the hon. Member for Wood Green on 15 March, Official Report, c. 105, how many of the wagons specified were built, or are planned to be built, outside the United Kingdom.

Mr. Eyre

Of the 428 new wagons referred to in that reply, one order for 25 wagons was placed outside the United Kingdom.

Contracts are placed by the grant applicant, not the Government, and I cannot forecast the source of wagons not yet ordered.
