HC Deb 07 December 1943 vol 395 cc780-1
63. Mr. Mathers

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he will increase the allowance of petrol to private car hirers in order that they may be in a better position to carry on their essential service to the public?

The Minister of Fuel and Power (Major Lloyd George)

I am reviewing, in consultation with other Departments, the allowances for taxis and hire-cars.

Mr. Mathers

When will the right hon. Gentleman be able to give the result of his consideration?

Major Lloyd George

Very soon, I hope.

Mr. Godfrey Nicholson

Is the right hon. and gallant Gentleman aware that there are certain districts which have greater claims than others, and will he give special consideration to cases from these districts?

Forward to
