In connection with future schemes the Chairman said it was not desirable that a lot of time be spent on detailed investigation in areas which, as a whole, may go over to other Regions under the adjustment of regional boundaries.
4. Allocation of units being built at Derby and by contractors
Revised schedule of allocation attached as Appendix "A".
The Chairman said the General Manager had asked whether Derby could build more units than already scheduled in view of the delay in delivery of units being built by contractors owing to shortage of steel.
Mr.Stanley said the delay was not only due to shortage of steel but to supplies of components such as seat frames, engine gears etc., but he will report on the possiblility of the Derby programme of 57 ft. vehicles being increased.
