asked the Minister of Supply if he is aware that motor vessels sold by the Admiralty for use as, or conversion for, fishing purposes are useless unless spare parts can be obtained; and what provision is made for the supply of such spare parts to purchasers in Scotland, especially where the engine is of U.S. make.
