HC Deb 03 March 1921 vol 138 c2034W

asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that the motor fuel sub-committee of the Standing Committee on the Investigation of Prices has drawn special attention to the necessity, in the interest of consumers, of preventing the supply of power alcohol from becoming a monopoly of non-British oil companies similar to their present monopoly of petrol; and whether, therefore, he will take steps to ensure that the distribution of power alcohol will not placed under the control of any non-British company?


I have been asked to answer this question. I am aware of the recommendation to which my hon. Friend refers, and the whole matter is receiving the Government's consideration.
