§ Order of the Day read for the consideration of the Tenth Report from the Special Orders Committee.
The Committee's Report was as follows:
The Committee as required by the Standing Orders of the House have considered the Order and the Petition against it of Total Oil Products (G.B.) Limited, and report:—
That, having heard the parties thereon and having considered the matters referred to in paragraph (6) (a) to (d) of Standing Order 216, they are of opinion that there ought to be a further inquiry by a Select Committee. They are further of opinion that the Order raises an important question of policy and principle, namely, the prohibition by Article 11of the Order of retail sales of petrol by the Company at filling stations acquired by the Company after the relevant date as defined by that Article.
§ Moved accordingly, and, on Question, Motion agreed to.
