asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if he can now make a statement on the Government's plans to make loans available to assist industrial consumers to improve their boiler plant or the insulation of their factories and thus lessen the consumption of fuel.

Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd

Consultation on the details of the scheme are now taking place with representatives of industry and I hope to be able to announce the details by the end of the month.

Mr. Noel-Baker

Would the Minister kindly let us have information as soon as possible about the applications which are made by industrialists?

Mr. Lloyd

Yes, Sir.
