HC Deb 21 November 1946 vol 430 c993
1. Major Tufton Beamish

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power the quantity of petrol issued for civilian purposes in each of the years 1939–45, inclusive, showing each year separately and classified between classes of coupons.

The Minister of Fuel and Power (Mr. Shinwell)

As I have indicated on previous occasions, I am not prepared to segregate civilian from military consumption of motor spirit during the war years. The statistics of total consumption have been published in the Statistical Digest, 1945.

Mr. H. Hynd

Can the Minister say how much petrol was used at Paddington yesterday?

Hon. Members
