92. Mr. Lee
asked the Paymaster-General whether he will state the position of the nation's reserves of fuel oil and the 44W pace at which they are running down; and whether he will make a statement outlining the policies of Her Majesty's Government designed to effect immediate economies by imposing a system of priorities which would ensure a supply of fuel oil for essential industries.
§ Mr. Maudling
For security reasons, stocks of oil are not disclosed but, as has already been announced, it will not be necessary to increase the present cuts on fuel oil during March.
