HC Deb 15 April 1948 vol 449 c82W
32. Mr. Erroll

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if under the new petrol distribution scheme commercial users will be free to draw uncoloured petrol from single-pump garages in order to avoid hardship arid inconvenience in rural areas.

Mr. Gaitskell

This matter is under consideration.

Captain Bullock

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he is aware that the proposal to colour commercial petrol will cause hardship to those with small businesses having only one petrol pump; and what steps he proposes to take to compensate them.

Mr. Gaitskell

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to the hon. Member for Altrincham and Sale (Mr. Erroll) on 12th April.
