HC Deb 09 March 1938 vol 332 c1875
23. Mr. Day

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he can give an assurance that His Majesty's Government are satisfied that the reserve stocks of oil are adequate to meet any emergency that may be necessary for the Fleet; and whether these stocks are adequately protected against air attacks?

Mr. Shakespeare

The Admiralty are taking the necessary measures to accumulate an adequate reserve of oil fuel for the Fleet, and arrangements are being made to provide protection against air attack.

Mr. Day

Are arrangements also being made for other oil besides oil fuel?
