HC Deb 03 May 1971 vol 816 c272W
65. Mr. Rose

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will ensure that in the case of all concessions granted to petroleum companies by public authorities there shall be a clause preventing the extension of such monopoly to the sale of products other than petrol.

Mr. Graham Page

Petroleum companies have given in respect of their own products undertakings not to impose restrictions on the sale of products other than petroleum at petrol stations. Concessions granted by my Department to petrol companies are consistent with these undertakings. I am not aware of any concessions granted by the public authorities for which my right hon. Friend is responsible which are inconsistent with them.
