HC Deb 13 October 1943 vol 392 c912W
Winǵ-Commander Hulbert

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport whether adequate supplies of anti-freeze are now available for doctors and others who use their motor-cars for work of national importance?

Mr. Noel-Baker

Yes, Sir. The Regional Transport Commissioners have been asked to consider favourably applications for anti-freeze made by medical practitioners, nurses and other persons engaged on work essential to the war effort, provided that the nature of their work is such that they cannot reasonably be expected to adopt alternative measures against frost, for example, draining their radiators.
