AS a reader of "The Commercial Motor," can you allow me sufficient space in your next issue to make a comment on Mr. F. BulIen's remarks and criticisms of tyre wastage?
When in Southern England a few weeks ago, I was astonished to see in a certain garage which had been blitzed a large number of Army vehicles, perhaps 30 to 40, all complete with good sound tyres. I could well understand that these vehicles had been there for some months. There was no roof on the garage and all were exposed to the weather, and, as far as I can learn, the vehicles are still there.
We are constantly reminded of the shortage of rubber and the seriousness of the situation. Surely, if this be the position, something ought to be done to preserve this vital commodity. F. G. WILLIAMS Monmouth. (For F.W.T. (Ross), Ltd.).
