    NOTE: Regret that this is 'shot' out of continuity of assembly but this was enforced to dodge other types, such as M.G. - Wolseley-Oxford, etc in line.
    NOTE: Public Relations of Morris Motors - Mr. Tony LUCAS - have promised to put in the post all necessary 'dope' on export of the Morris Minor '1000'. This material has to be posted from Birmingham.
