HC Deb 24 July 1947 vol 440 c162W
28. Mr. Medlicott

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if he is aware that the allocation of fuel to dairy farmers is insufficient to enable them to meet their requirements for milk-sterilising purposes; and if the allocation can be increased.

Mr. Shinwell

No separate allocation of fuel is made to farmers for milk sterilising purposes and I am unaware of any shortage of fuel for this purpose. If the hon. Member has knowledge of any particular cases of difficulty, however, and will let me have details I will have these investigated.
