asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs how many new Austin motor cars have been supplied to the Control Commission for Germany during the six months preceding the latest available date; for what purposes they are used; and for approximately how many weeks, on an average, they have been out of running order since delivery.

388 new Austin cars were received between 1st February, 1947, and 28th July 1947. They are used for transporting officials of the Control Commission on their various duties and, to a small extent, for providing recreational transport. Statistics are not available as to the average number of weeks during which these cars have been out of running order.
