asked the Minister of Fuel and Power, whether he is aware that the proposed ration of 55 cwts. to a seven-room house in Southern England and 85 cwts. in the North means that, after adding the personal ration and making a reasonable and uniform deduction for cooking and light, the fuel available for heat in the South will, in many cases, be less than half that in the North; and whether, he has any statistics of winter temperatures which justify this disparity?
