HC Deb 06 May 1948 vol 450 c1424
17. Mr. Stanley Prescott

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if he is aware that there are some 7,000 garages which have only one petrol pump, and which will suffer severely under the revised petrol rationing proposals; and if he can now say how he proposes to limit the hardship to owners of such garages.

Mr. Gaitskell

I would refer the hon. Member to the statement I made on this subject in moving the Second Reading of the Motor Spirit (Regulation) Bill.

Mr. Turton

Mr. Gaitskell
