HC Deb 08 August 1918 vol 109 cc1566-7W

asked the Vice-President of the Department of Agriculture (Ireland) why, though petrol is to be conserved for agricultural purposes, he refused, in a specific case, 4,371 Blackrock, a permit for even 1 quart daily for that purpose?


It is presumed the number quoted by the hon. Member is that of a motor cycle in connection with which an application was made to the Department of Agriculture for a recommendation for the granting of a petrol permit by the Petrol Control Board. The Department investigated this case most carefully, and they are quite satisfied that it is not one in regard to which they should make any recommendation.
