§ Mr. Winterton
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how many representations he has received urging him to implement a policy of fuel rationing.
§ Mr. Tom Boardman
My Department has so far received more than 1,000 letters dealing with all aspects of rationing. Of these about 10 per cent urged that it should now be introduced. The remainder dealt with the difficulties that could face particular persons or organisations if rationing came into force.
