§ 41. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked the Minister of Transport if he can give an estimate of the number of motor vehicles of all kinds now on the roads of Great Britain by the number of motor licences current; and if he has made any estimate of the probable increase in the number of motor vehicles during the present year?
§ Colonel ASHLEY
The maximum number of motor vehicle licences current during the year 1926 was about 1,730,000, and this is, perhaps, the best estimate I can give in answer to the first part of the hon. and gallant Member's question. The probable increase during the present year may be put down at about 150,000.
