HC Deb 13 May 1948 vol 450 c241W
Brigadier Rayner

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he will now instruct regional petroleum officers to accept applications from farmers for a special allowance of petrol to attend the Royal Agricultural Society's Show and other similar shows held this summer.

Mr. Gaitskell

Regional petroleum officers are already authorised to grant petrol allowances to farmers for travelling by private car or motor cycle to agricultural shows, where the use of public transport for the journey is impracticable.
