asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he is aware that gas and electricity undertakings have been asked to suply fuel overseers with the figures of consumption of their millions of consumers for the last four quarters; and for what purpose this information is required, seeing that the Annex Plan is to assess the needs of householders on the basis of number of rooms and inhabitants?
