asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he is aware of the material reduction of consumption reported by the North Eastern Electric Supply Company, of Newcastle, in 22 areas in different parts of the country; and what is the estimated reduction in the country generally?

Major Lloyd George:

I have seen the statement in the Press to which my hon. Friend refers, and which related to the June quarter. I am not at present in a position to give the estimate asked for in the second part of the Question, but I hope to have some information available shortly for the country generally.
