§ Mr. Parker
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that the leading commercial vehicle manufacturers are ceasing to produce vehicles for home consumption from the end of October; and what steps he is taking to see that an adequate supply of such vehicles will be available to meet all contingencies?
§ Mr. Stanley
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. Discussions are proceeding between the motor industry and the Departments concerned with a view to securing that the productive capacity of the industry shall be used to the best advantage in the national interest.
