asked the Minister for Supplies if he is prepared to grant a permit and petrol supply licence to Mr. J.P. Walsh, Sutton Cross, Sutton, who has a good national record, including a 1916 award, in respect of his van Z.8408, as the withdrawal of his permit means that he will have no means of livelihood.

I have considered the application made by this trader for the continued use of his van. He is engaged in a class of business for which it is not possible, in present circumstances, to issue further permits and petrol allowances. Applications from other persons carrying on a similar business have been refused. I regret that I am unable to afford exceptional treatment in this particular case.
