HC Deb 13 July 1943 vol 391 cc23-4
58. Sir Arnold Gridley

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what steps he has taken to bring to the notice of industrial users the possibilities of economising fuel by means of the application of thermostatic control to steam heating and to certain processes in which steam is used; and is he satisfied that sufficient thermostatic control units are being manufactured to secure extended fuel economy by industrial users?

Major Lloyd George

My Ministry last February issued a bulletin, of which I am sending my hon. Friend a copy, setting forth the merits of thermostatic control in appropriate circumstances, and its value is being stressed in publicity addressed to industrial consumers. Although I should not like to say I am satisfied that the production of thermostats is adequate, I have made arrangements for a substantial increase in output.
