HC Deb 20 November 1947 vol 444 c201W
28. Sir W. Wakefield

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if he is aware of the hardship being experienced by ex-Service men who have started private hire-car businesses on leaving the Services in recent years; and will he review the present refusal to allocate petrol to such people who have been using their basic petrol allotment for car-hire purposes.

Mr. Gaitskell

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply that I gave him on 6th November to which I regret I have nothing to add.
