asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether, in view of representations made to his Department by the agricultural industry in connection with the poor quality of present-day supplies of paraffin, he intends to allow petroleum distributors to market burning oils of better quality.

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave to the hon. Member for Evesham (Mr. De la Bère) on 31st March, and add that I have now received proposals for marketing a better quality burning oil and am discussing them with the representatives of the petroleum industry.
