HL Deb 29 April 1942 vol 122 c816WA

asked His Majesty's Government, what instructions have been issued to Divisional Petroleum Officers with reference to the issue of supplementary petrol coupons to members of His Majesty's Forces and munition workers living over fifteen miles from their stations or places of work (a) up to June 30 next; and (b) after that date.


Divisional Petroleum Officers are authorized to issue coupons for cars or motor cycles to Service personnel and munition workers to cover necessary journeys between their homes and places of duty or employment where the use of alternative means of transport is not reasonably practicable and suitable accommodation nearer the work is not available. No arbitrary limit of distance has been laid down and there is no intention at present of altering the existing arrangements.

House adjourned.
