HC Deb 27 April 1953 vol 514 c1731
3. Mr. Janner

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power how many domestic coal consumers' councils are now in existence.

Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd

One, Sir.

Mr. Janner

Is the Minister aware of the very considerable number of complaints in Leicester and district and elsewhere not only about the quantity and quality but also about the price of coal? Does he not think it necessary to have local consumers' councils so that people have the opportunity of making their complaints and having them dealt with on the spot?

Mr. Lloyd

At present, my view is the same as that of my predecessor in thinking that it is not necessary.
