§ 36. Mr. Wilson Harris
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in order to secure maximum economy in fuel consumption, he will institute daylight-saving forthwith.
§ Mr. Ede
The answer to this suggestion —which would involve amending legislation—is, "No, Sir." Apart from other considerations it must be remembered that at this time of the year any saving in the later hours of the day is liable to be offset by increased consumption in the early hours of the morning.
