HC Deb 17 February 1958 vol 582 cc108-9W
Mr. Lewis

asked the Paymaster-General whether he is aware that the wholesale price of petrol has recently been reduced by ¾d. a gallon and although the wholesale price of petrol is now lower than at the outbreak of the Suez war, the retail price is still ½d. a gallon above this pre-Suez war price; and whether, in view of this further information, he will reintroduce price control on petrol.

Sir I. Horobin
