HC Deb 11 February 1980 vol 978 c423W
24. Mr. McQuarrie

asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will have discussions with the major oil companies and wholesale distributors to ensure that no rural service stations will have their supplies of fuels cut off, or contracts terminated, so long as a community need and amenity can be proved.

Mr. Gray

The companies principally concerned have already given my Department assurances which I have conveyed to the House on 29 October and subsequently.
