HC Deb 04 April 1938 vol 334 cc32-3W
Commander Locker-Lampson

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether, in view of the possible shortage of oil supplies during a war, he will consider the use in public departments of steam-driven cars with the consequent saving in petrol and oil?

Lieut.-Colonel Colville

The whole question of the use of substitutes for oil fuels in time of war is under constant consideration. The particular suggestion made by the hon. and gallant Member will be borne in mind.
