HC Deb 10 November 1942 vol 383 cc2232-3
13. Mr. Hewlett

asked the Secretary of State for War to what extent, in view of the shortage of petrol, the Army is making use of horse-drawn transport in this country?

The Secretary of State for War (Sir James Grigg)

All horse-drawn transport available in the Army is being used to save the rubber and petrol of motor vehicles. Instructions were issued in September that animal transport could also be hired for this purpose.
