HC Deb 01 May 1947 vol 436 cc2156-7
9. Mr. Piratin

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether it is by understanding with the Petroleum Board that petrol stations are removing pool petrol signs and replacing former trade-mark signs, such as B.P., etc.

Mr. Shinwell

No, Sir, there is no such understanding. Dealers should continue to affix "Pool" labels on petrol pumps in use, as hitherto. The labels are however of paper, and liable to come off in wet weather.

Mr. Piratin

Has not the Minister received such information from some of the workers employed at these stations, and has he not looked into the matter?

Mr. Shinwell

I am not aware of any such information being conveyed to me, but I will look into the matter.
