HC Deb 07 October 1941 vol 374 c852W
Mr. Crowder

asked the Secretary for Petroleum what percentage of the total number of licensed private motor-cars is represented by the number of private motor-cars for which supplementary rations of motor-fuel were issued in the last ration period?

Mr. Lloyd

Besides allowances granted by my Department, supplementary issues are in many cases drawn by motorists from Government Departments, local authorities and other bodies for work connected with the war effort. In these circumstances no definite percentage can usefully be quoted.
