HC Deb 07 August 1919 vol 119 cc552-3
94. Sir P. GOFF

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the Coal Controller's attention has been called to the extravagant consumption of electric light by shops, hotels, and music halls for purposes of advertisement; and whether, in view of the threatened shortage and in fairness to the domestic consumer, he will reduce the allowance of electric light for frontages and show windows, so as to be able to increase the allowance to householders?


This matter is at present under consideration.
