Asked if the Prime Minister was concerned that there could be fuel rationing, the PMS said that he did not think that was going to happen. The position was that there was sufficient fuel. The problem was getting it round the country. We had been putting into place measures that would ease that situation, such as relaxing rules on driving time.
Put that the Prime Minister was confident that fuel rationing would not take place, the PMS replied that we were actively looking at this issue and talking to Local Authorities and hauliers to make sure we were doing everything we could.
