HC Deb 10 December 1956 vol 562 cc16-7W
84. Mr. D. Howell

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether, in view of the difficulties which the travelling public will experience as a result of the new restrictions upon fuel oil, he will increase the allocation of petrol and oil for public transport services in Birmingham and other industrial centres.

Mr. Watkinson

No. Some reductions in public transport services will be unavoidable, but they will not be great. The precise application of the allocations I have made must be left to my regional transport commissioners.
