asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether, as peace has now come, he will relax the wartime restrictions on taxi-cab owners in Northern Ireland which circumscribed the area they should cover; and whether, in the interests both of the owners and users of taxi-cabs, he will arrange at an early date for a reversion to pre-war conditions.

As I stated yesterday in reply to a similar Question, I must defer considering the possibility of relaxing the present petrol rationing restrictions on taxi-cabs and private hire cars until I have reviewed our arrangements for future petrol supplies when Lend-Lease supplies cease.
