Economy Schemes

Part of Oral Answers to Questions — Fuel and Power – in the House of Commons on 8th September 1942.

Alert me about debates like this

Major Lloyd George:

The actual words used by my hon. and gallant Friend were: A substantial economy of fuel in space heating could be achieved if all meals were taken in the kitchen, and one or both of the living rooms not used unless they could be used without fires. A large proportion of domestic fuel consumed is used for space heating and I see no reason to withdraw this suggestion, which is one of many issued by my Department in order to assist consumers in economising fuel. As regards the last part of the Question, I can assure my hon. and gallant Friend that the knowledge and experience of house-wives is constantly used in connection with my fuel economy campaign.
