§ Mr. KINLEY
asked the Secretary of State for War, whether subsidies are still given to owners of private motor vehicles in order that the vehicles may be used by the Government in time of emergency; and what is the amount give annually per vehicle?
§ Mr. T. SHAW
Yes, Sir. As shown on page 135 of the current Army Estimates, subsidies are paid at the rate of £40 a year to owners of certain types of lorries, in order that they may be available for purchase by the War Department in emergency.
