§ 29. Major-General Sir Alfred Knox
asked the Secretary for Petroleum whether he can take any steps to secure a more equitable distribution of paraffin through country districts as many villages find difficulty in obtaining a. regular and adequate supply for cooking and lighting?
I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the answer which I gave to the hon. and gallant Member for Peters-field (Sir G. Jeffreys) on the 17th instant, of which I am sending him a copy.
§ Sir A. Knox
Are any active steps being taken to improve the distribution? Does the hon. Gentleman realise that many villages depend on paraffin for lighting and heating?
