HC Deb 29 October 1946 vol 428 cc86-7W
Sir G. Fox

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how much longer it is intended to maintain the present system of petrol rationing in East Africa.

Mr. Creech Jones

It is not yet possible to abolish rationing. As from 1st November, however, coupon rationing in Kenya, Uganda and Tanganyika will be replaced by a system of administrative control which will not involve any increase in consumption.
