HC Deb 29 November 1973 vol 865 cc208-9W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Prime Minister if he will instruct all Ministers with offices within the Whitehall area that they should not use their official cars for travel to and from their offices and the House of Commons but should walk during the period of the energy crisis.

The Prime Minister

No. Ministers need their official cars to meet their ministerial and parliamentary responsibilities. Arrangements have already been made to reduce petrol consumption to a minimum resulting in a saving of about 15 per cent. over previous levels.
