§ 78. Mr. Boothby
asked the Minister of War Transport whether he is aware that medical practitioners in the country districts of Scotland are unable to obtain motor cars to carry out their work; and whether he will restore the priority system in cases where, the possession of a motor car is essential in the national interest.
§ Mr. Barnes
I do not think that it is necessary or practicable to restore the priority system but I am reminding manufacturers of the importance of giving preference to applicants needing cars in the national interest. All holders of licences under the old system are entitled to priority in delivery.
