HC Deb 13 March 1947 vol 434 cc1480-1
30. Mr. Parkin

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if he will instruct his regional officers to give sympathetic con- sideration to applications for increased petrol allowances from farmers who have been obliged to use an abnormal proportion of petrol in tractors hauling water and fodder during the cold weather.

Mr. Shinwell

My Regional Officers will certainly grant petrol allowances to meet all essential agricultural needs.
