Alert me about debates like this

Major Lloyd George:

In view of the urgent need to save fuel, I regret I cannot see my way to extend the area of 10 miles within which unrestricted hiring may be undertaken. I should like to add, however, that the new Hire Service Order which will come into force on 1st September allows the use of petrol for journeys within a radius of 75 miles for urgent business or domestic purposes for which other means of travel are not reasonably practicable.
