asked the Secretary of State for the Environment (1) what was the cost of all Government transport since 1st March 1974; and how this compares with one year ago;(2) what were the total numbers of Government motor vehicle on 1st March 1975 and on 1st March 1974.

I regret that it is not possible to provide a year for year comparison in the terms requested by the hon. Gentleman without disproportionate cost. A large number of Government Departments have vehicle fleets of their own, some operational, some for carrying passengers, some in London, some in other parts of the United Kingdom, some for special establishments like the Road Research Laboratory and the Building Research Station.
