I am aware of the demand for two-seater invalid tricycles, but it would not be practicable to meet it. None of the small two-seater vehicles brought to our attention has been found suitable for use by disabled persons generally. There are, however, cars already provided for severely disabled war pensioners. I do not know the grounds for alleging inefficiency in the machines now being issued, and I do not accept the suggestion.
