asked the Minister of War Transport if he is aware that Messrs. Stanley Transport, 12 Shepherds Hill, W.6, have three ten-ton lorries in perfect mechanical condition; that they have made repeated applications for a licence to use these vehicles; and if, in view of the shortage of transport in the London area, he will see that these vehicles are allowed to operate.

This firm have recently been granted "Contract" defence permits enabling them to operate two vehicles. I am inquiring into the position of the third vehicle.
