HC Deb 01 July 1948 vol 452 c238W
79. Mr. Hurd

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what arrangements are made to allow petrol to business men from Canada and elsewhere who come here to buy machinery and other equipment and who can most economically borrow or hire a car to drive themselves on business journeys.

Mr. Robens

Regional petroleum officers are authorised to grant allowances to meet the reasonable needs of overseas visitors in respect of business journeys, provided the vehicle to be used is lent or hired for the exclusive use of the visitor during the period the journeys are to be made.
