Two Approaches to Rationing

THERE are two schools of thought in I South Wales on how to use the basic fuel ration. Some operators have said they are going to carry on as usual until they have used up their allocation and then close down. Others are inclined to eke it out over the rationing period as well as they can.

Operators have not helped themselves. because some did not apply for their rations by the stipulated date and over 500 applications were received on the day rationing started.

Mr. L. A. Owens. secretary of the South Wales Area of the R.H.A., said that the week's basic allowance for an • eight-wheeler would allow the vehicle to travel from Cardiff to T.ondon and back as far as Oxford.

Operators were complaining last week that in the absence of information on their supplementary allocations, they could not decide which vehicles to tax in the New Year.
