§ 48. Mr. Lewis
asked the Prime Minister what instructions he has issued, or intends to issue, to Her Majesty's Ministers, on the use of public transport, or foot transport, in place of their Ministerial cars whilst the present fuel crisis and petrol rationing is in operation; and whether he will ban the use of Ministerial cars by Ministers between their Whitehall or other London offices and the House of Commons.
§ 49. Mr. G. Jeger
asked the Prime Minister what restrictions are being placed on the use of Ministerial cars in view of the petrol shortage.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
I have been asked to reply.
Arrangements are being made which are designed to reduce petrol consumption on Ministerial cars by a half.
