HC Deb 07 July 1942 vol 381 c617
6. Mr. Donald Scott

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he has considered the motion passed by the Whitley and Monkseaton Urban District Council at their meeting on 20th June, a copy of which has been sent him, with regard to premises in their district used in housing electrically-controlled machines used for pleasure or gaming purposes; and what action he intends to take, in view of the unnecessary use of light and power in such places?

Major Lloyd George

I have received the motion to which my hon. Friend refers. I would refer him to the reply on this subject which I gave on 30th June to the hon. Lady the Member for Frome (Mrs. Tate).
