HC Deb 11 June 1942 vol 380 c1263W
Sir Smedley Crooke

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the forthcoming stopping of the basic ration of petrol and the consequent laying-up of motor-cars, he will consider the advisability of issuing free licences for those motor-cars of the Birmingham Voluntary Transport section solely used for the transport of serving men going home on short leave, arriving at railway stations in the early hours of the morning, as is done to those using their motor-cars during an aerial bombardment in conjunction with Civil Defence authorities?

Sir K. Wood

I regret that it will not be possible to extend the arrangements now being made as suggested by my hon. Friend.
