HC Deb 01 December 1948 vol 458 cc190-1W
Mr. N. Macpherson

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power on what grounds he has refused an adequate supply of petrol to the Langholm Dyeing and Finishing Co., Ltd., Langholm, Dumfriesshire, for ensuring the satisfactory introduction and distribution of the products of this factory.

Mr. Gaitskell

My hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary has already informed the hon. Member that the managing director of this firm, to whom I assume he is referring, is in receipt of the maximum quantity of petrol normally allowed for this type of business.
