asked the Secretary of State for War the number of disused vehicles of all descriptions which are lying and rotting at the back of Knole Park, near Sevenoaks; and why these are not made available to the public.

Approximately 5,000 vehicles are held at this depot, of which some 3,600 are required by the Army and are being moved to permanent Army depots. These vehicles are inspected regularly and maintained in a state of care and preservation as far as resources permit. I am making arrangements for my right hon. Friend the Minister of Supply to hold an auction in August at which the balance of approximately 1,400 vehicles will be sold.
