HC Deb 19 November 1956 vol 560 c55W
75. Mr. Allaun

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if he is aware that, as a result of fuel economies, 1 in 10 of all British Road Services lorries is being taken off the roads; and, in view of the fact that fuel is still obtainable for purposes less essential to the country's needs, if he will take steps to ease this restriction.

Mr. Aubrey Jones

The fuel used by British Road Services lorries is nearly all diesel fuel which, broadly speaking, is used only for essential purposes.
