§ Mr. G. Hutchinson
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether the petrol allowance available for members of the Forces on leave from overseas will be 678W granted to those members who do not own motor-cars but are able to borrow motor-cars from relatives during their period of leave.
The regulations governing this allowance were drawn up in collaboration with the three Service Departments, and I have been in consultation with these Departments in connection with my hon. Friend's suggestion. There are considerable difficulties in extending in this way the concession which is already made to members of the Forces on leave, but I am continuing my consultation with the Service Departments and will communicate with my hon. Friend.
