ffi will be some time before the need to keep dery records is scrapped. The I Hydrocarbon Oils (Marking of Gas Oil) Regulations. 1961, came into effect last Saturday, thus making it obligatory to mark with a dye gas oil not intended for use in a road vehicle—it bears duty of only 2d. a gallon. But dery records must still be kept.
A Customs and Excise spokesman told The Commercial Motor this week:
It will be a fair while yet before they can be withdrawn." He explained that before dery records could be scrapped, machinery had to be set up to enforce the new regulations, and this would probably take some time.
