HC Deb 25 February 1947 vol 433 c271W
107. Mr. York

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether any of the 10,000 U.S. petrol engines ordered for agricultural purposes have arrived; and what proportion of the machines fitted with these engines will be made available for British farms.

Mr. Collick

Twenty-five thousand petrol engines are on order from the U.S.A. for fitting into British-made tractors. Some of these have arrived and others are on the way. It is expected that at least 75 per cent. of the tractors will be available for British farmers.
