HC Deb 02 November 1943 vol 393 cc493-4
1. Mr. Neil Maclean

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what suggestions he has made to any sections of the gas-producing undertakings to formulate proposals; whether he proposes to set up a committee to hold an inquiry to consider the conditions of the industry; whether he is yet in a position to give the names of the individuals who have been invited to join the committee; and what interests they represent?

The Minister of Fuel and Power (Major Lloyd George)

I have asked the gas industry to submit proposals on the organisation of the industry in the post-war period, and I have just received the British Gas Federation's Report on this subject. Until I have had the opportunity of considering this Report, I am not in a position to make any statement.

Mr. Maclean

Will the right hon. and gallant Gentleman make a statement as soon as possible after he has read the Report?
