§ 27. Lieut.-Colonel Sir Thomas Moore
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what quantity of petrol was exported from 632 Britain during the quarter ended 31st December, 1946; and to what countries.
§ The Minister of Fuel and Power (Mr. Shinwell)
As the answer contains a number of figures I will circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
§ Sir T. Moore
As there are a number of figures it can be assumed that there is a large quantity of petrol being exported, but why should we export any petrol since we are going short in our own country both for industrial and private consumption?
§ Following is the answer:
|The exports of petrol from Britain during the quarter ended 31st December, 1946, were as follows:|
|Country of Destination.||Exports. (Tons).||Re-Exports. (Tons).||Total (Tons).|
