HC Deb 06 April 1943 vol 388 c501W
Lieutenant-Commander Hutchison

asked the Secretary of State for War under what circumstances a large number of Army vehicles were employed in conveying members of the Polish armed forces to and from a football match at Tynecastle, Edinburgh, on the 10th March; who was the authority responsible for sanctioning the use of petrol for this purpose, and whether he will take steps to prevent a similar wastage of fuel in the future?

Sir J. Grigg

This matter has been fully investigated by the Polish authorities, and appropriate steps have been taken to prevent any repetition of such an incident.
