§ Mr. Granville
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he will consider the claims of agents of factories and representatives for tractors in small rural towns to supply and stock tractors and equipment under the Government Bulk Purchase Scheme?
§ Sir R. Dorman-Smith
Purchases of tractors and implements for the National Reserve are being made direct from the manufacturers and not through agents. The tractors are being stored on dealer's premises all over the country in quantities proportionate to each dealer's ordinary trade; the implements are being stored by the suppliers.
