HC Deb 28 October 1952 vol 505 c186W
64. Mr. Hale

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he is aware that the concessionary petrol allowance to persons using mechanical invalid chairs only applies to those using chairs furnished by the Government; and whether he will extend this allowance to people who have provided their own chairs.

Mr. Amory

The hon. Member is under a misapprehension. The allowance is already extended to applicants who own motor tricycles provided they satisfy the normal conditions for the supply of machines at the State's expense.
