HC Deb 24 May 1916 vol 82 c2120W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the prohibition of the use of private motor carriages for what are known as joy-rides on Saturday or Sunday is under contemplation; and, if so, whether any decision arrived at will be made public before the extra Licence Duties for motor carriages have to be discussed in this House?


As the hon. and gallant Gentleman is no doubt aware, the whole matter of the supply and distribution of petrol is being considered by a Committee. Any decision on the point named in the first part of the question which may be arrived at by the Government will be made public as soon as possible.
