HC Deb 28 July 1942 vol 382 c319
63. Mr. Purbrick

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what schemes have been framed, in consultation with industrial groups, to give part of the cash saved by fuel economy to employees?

Major Lloyd George

War-time conditions have made it more difficult to operate bonus schemes for stokers and for boiler house operatives. None the less, the Fuel Efficiency Committee have urged on the industrial groups they have been meeting, the importance of offering their employees an inducement to economise in the use of fuel. Several firms have started schemes of this kind with satisfactory results, and I hope that many others will follow their example.
