asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if he will restore a basic petrol ration not later than 1st May to assist the early staggering of holidays and enable, cricket and other sporting clubs to arrange in time their fixtures for away matches.

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Fuel and Power (Mr. Robens)

would ask the hon. Member to await the statement which, with Mr. Speaker's permission, my right hon. Friend proposes to make at the end of Questions tomorrow.

Mr. Lipson

Will the hon. Gentleman inform his right hon. Friend that whatever concession is possible it would be doubly welcome if it was made to apply before the Whitsun holidays?
