asked the Minister of Supply and of Aircraft Production how many motor vehicles have been passed to his Ministry under the White Paper policy for the disposal of surplus goods; how many have been passed by his Ministry to the selected channel of distribution; and how many have been disposed of to the public.

235,400 surplus motor vehicles of all types have been passed to my Ministry for disposal. Of these 45,000 have been allocated to other Government Departments, to relief purposes and to the allied Governments; 51,600 have been passed to the industry for disposal to the public through trade channels; and of the remainder 72,750 have been broken down for scrap and spares.
