§ [The question was as follows:
§ To ask His Majesty's Government whether, in view of the forthcoming increases in petrol allowances for motor vehicles, they propose to increase petrol allowances for private and club-owned aircraft, and aircraft operated by charter companies.]
§ LORD AMMON
My Lords, it is proposed to increase the allowance of civil aviation fuel for aircraft in this country, and it is hoped to make an announcement shortly.
§ LORD POLWARTH
I thank the noble Lord for his reply. May I ask him how soon we may expect this announcement?
