HC Deb 08 April 1941 vol 370 cc1418-9
69. Mr. Thorne

asked the Minister of Transport whether he can give any information in connection with omnibuses being run on creosote fuel?

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport (Mr. Montague)

A certain number of omnibuses are run on creosote mixtures, and a revised scheme for rationing creosote and other home-produced heavy oils used as motor fuel was brought into operation on 24th January last. Creosote is in great demand for the war effort for purposes other than transport.
