Mr Jones called to see Mr Brown, but as he was not there I saw him.
He said that he had landed the last lot of 250 c.c. Tiger Scooters for which he has a 1965/66 licence for £6,000. He said he now wants to make 100 c.c. scooters, which is a new m0del with automatic gear change and he wanted to know the department’s policy. He considered that this was a new project altogether and therefore they could start at stage one and work forward through the stages. I informed him that the department would consider the manufacture at that stage where he should have arrived under the old manufacturing scheme, which I would understand to be either stage 3 or stage 4.
Mr Jones later called to see Mr Brown who confirmed the above.
