HC Deb 30 January 1941 vol 368 cc708-9W
Lieut.-Commander Tufnell

asked the Secretary for Petroleum whether, in view of the difficulties of transport owing to the inspectorate areas of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals having become larger in consequence of men having joined the Forces, he will consider increasing petrol allowances of the remaining inspectors concerned to enable them to deal with the requirements of the work?

Mr. Lloyd

I have a warm sympathy for the work of the society to which my hon. and gallant Friend refers, but in view of the urgent need to economise petrol consumption I am afraid I do not see my way to adopting his suggestion.
