HC Deb 29 January 1948 vol 446 c175W
Sir R. Glyn

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he is in a position to give assurances to all firms who at the request of the Government converted the firing of boilers from coal to oil burning that adequate supplies of oil will be available during the next six months; and whether he is aware that difficulties in obtaining sufficient tank storage facilities are preventing, in some cases, sufficient stocks being accumulated.

Mr. Gaitskell

Yes. Adequate supplies of fuel oil should be available during the next six months for plants which have already been converted to oil firing. I am not aware that tank storage facilities are giving rise to difficulties but if the hon. Member will let me have details, I will look into the matter.
