§ 88. Mr. Simmonds
asked the Secretary for Mines whether he will allow to members of the ocean-going Mercantile Marine similar concessions regarding fuel for private motor vehicles whilst they are on leave as he has granted in the case of members of His Majesty's Forces?
§ Mr. Shakespeare
This question is at present under consideration, in consultation with the Service and other Departments concerned, but the Secretary for Mines is not yet in a position to make any statement.
§ Mr. Simmonds
Will my hon. Friend ask the Secretary for Mines to bear in mind that, although these men may not wear His Majesty's uniform, they are undertaking work equally important and dangerous with that of the Armed Forces?
