My hon. Friend's suggestion is correct if an unusually large amount of fuel is devoted to cooking and lighting. But otherwise the house in the South has available for heating, after a reasonable allowance for cooking and lighting, more and not less than one-half the fuel that is available for the same purposes in a comparable house in the North. On the last part of the Question, I would refer the hon. Member to the Reply that I gave on 16th June to my hon. Friend the Member for Colchester (Mr. Lewis).
