asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport whether he can estimate the yearly cost, including salaries and establishment charges and administration, of operating the new Government haulage scheme?

I regret that, until I know what sums will be payable to controlled road haulage undertakings, and what numbers of vehicles will be taken into the scheme on hire, I shall not be able to estimate the annual cost of the scheme.
