HC Deb 18 January 1974 vol 867 c189W
Sir D. Walker-Smith

asked the Minister for Energy whether he has yet completed his review of the practice of some garages in restricting petrol supplies to customers having an account at the filling station; and if he will make a statement as to his conclusions.

Mr. Patrick Jenkin

This was a practice which became prevalent when petrol shortages developed in some parts of the country in early December. The problem has now very largely disappeared.
