HC Deb 19 October 1939 vol 352 c1070W
Mr. Leslie

asked the Secretary for Mines whether he is aware that the present inadequate petrol ration has created hardship and unemployment to many commercial travellers; and whether he will consider increasing the ration in the interests of trade and the prevention of further unemployment?

Mr. Lloyd

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave on the 17th instant to the hon. and learned Member for East Leicester (Mr. Lyons).
