§ 29. Major Sir Basil Neven-Spence
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power how many inspectors are employed by his Department in watching deliveries of coal to domestic consumers.
§ Mr. Shinwell
I have no inspectors employed in watching deliveries of coal to domestic consumers. It is however part of the functions of fuel inspectors or enforcement officers employed by my Ministry and by local authorities under the provisions of the Fuel and Lighting Orders 1097 to make inquiry as to actual deliveries to domestic consumers where it is suspected that there has been a breach of the Regulations.
