asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he will instruct his Regional Officers to give sympathetic consideration to the application of elderly clergymen who are in charge of scattered parishes, in some instances replacing colleagues who have become chaplains, for E supplementary petrol rations, which would enable them to replace worn out motor-car tyres?
The steps already taken in addition to normal rationing procedure are indicated in the Motor Fuel (Hire Service) Order, 1941, Statutory Rules and Orders, 1941, No. 1745. As to further steps, I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the answer which my right hon. and gallant Friend gave him on 23rd June.
What has been done by 1st July, as definitely promised by the hon. Gentleman on 17th March last, in the matter of this abuse, which he has had under consideration month after month?
