HC Deb 18 November 1936 vol 317 cc1799-800W
Rear-Admiral Sir M. SUETER

asked the Minister of Transport whether he can see his way to advise all municipal authorities who are overhauling their transport arrangements that too much dependence on foreign sources of fuel is undesirable and that, wherever possible, home-produced coal should be utilised?


I have no reason to doubt that municipal authorities, within whose autonomy this matter falls, take all proper considerations into account when ordering their vehicles.
