HC Deb 06 April 1943 vol 388 cc499-500W
Mr. De la Bère

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will issue instructions to stop the practice which is at present in force in some of the mechanised transport units of the Army throughout the country of washing motor-lorries with petrol?

Sir J. Grigg

Units are strictly forbidden to use petrol for this purpose and if my hon. Friend will send me particulars of any cases which have come to his notice I will have them investigated.
