HC Deb 04 December 1947 vol 445 c97W
81. Mr. D. Marshall

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if he is aware that service in Palestine is active service; and will he consider allowing supplementary leave petrol for those serving in this theatre.

Mr. Gaitskell

I regret that I cannot authorise special allowances of petrol for members of His Majesty's Forces on leave from Palestine.
