HC Deb 29 June 1979 vol 969 c349W
Mr. Eldon Griffiths

asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will hold urgent talks with the oil companies to ensure that sufficient diesel fuel is released to farmers to enable them to get in the hay and pea harvests.

Mr. Gray

I have already stressed in discussions with the oil industry the particular importance of ensuring that farmers receive sufficient fuel supplies in good time for harvesting and haymaking.
