HC Deb 29 April 1948 vol 450 cc81-2W
98. Mr. Joynson-Hicks

asked the Minister of Transport upon what grounds it was decided to cut the allocations of petrol to commercial users by an amount of 10 per cent.

Mr. Barnes

The recent 10 per cent. cut in allocations of petrol to goods vehicles was decided upon because of the necessity for saving imported fuel and having regard to present traffic requirements. At the same time the Russell Vick Committee included this cut among their recommendations.
