JO­HAN­NES­BURG – The Petrol Dis­tri­bu­tion Com­mit­tee has been hav­ing an ex­tremely busy time these last few days, many thou­sands of ap­pli­cants for petrol hav­ing be­ing dealt with. Ap­pli­ca­tions by doc­tors and med­i­cal men were dealt with first of all, and per­mits have been dis­trib­uted to prac­ti­tion­ers. The sup­ply, how­ever, is be­ing ra­tioned down to ab­so­lutely es­sen­tial re­quire­ments, and as the quan­tity avail­able is very limited, not more than one-tenth of the amount asked for can be granted.
