HC Deb 06 June 1921 vol 142 c1533W
Commander BELLAIRS

asked the Minister of Transport what steps he proposes to take to remedy the variety of local regulations on the storage of petrol and to introduce some uniformity?


I have been asked to reply to this question. The desirability of giving power to a central authority to frame Regulations of a general character was recognised by the Departmental Committee, which reported shortly before the War, but legislation would be necessary for this purpose, and it has not been found possible as yet to deal with the matter.
