Motor Cars (Doctors)

asked the Minister of Supply how many orders for British cars were placed by doctors in the years 1946–47; how many British cars were delivered to doctors in the years 1946–47; and how many such orders were outstanding on 1st January, 1948.

asked the Minister of Supply what steps he is taking to ensure that the degree of priority he requested motor manufacturers to accord to doctors is actually being given to them.

The distribution of motor cars is left to the industry. There is, however, close contact between my Department and the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders and I am satisfied that the industry is honouring its undertaking to give preference to the delivery of cars ordered by doctors.
