HC Deb 15 December 1949 vol 470 c322W
130. Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether his attention has been drawn to the case at Broughton, Lancashire, in which petrol coloured white was found to give a similar reaction to chemical tests to red petrol containing the chemicals prescribed by him; and whether, in view of the risk of conviction of innocent people resulting from this occurrence, he is taking steps to prevent its recurrence.

Mr. Robens

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply my right hon. Friend gave on 12th December to the hon. Member for Sutton Coldfield (Sir J. Mellor).
