§ 28. Mr. Nabarro
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he has completed his inquiries in the matter of the recent publication of a pamphlet by the British Electrical Development Association entitled, "Facts about Fuels"; and whether he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd
Yes, Sir. I think that this pamphlet is open to criticism because it makes certain misleading comparisons between fuels, and I have told the British Electricity Authority so.
§ Mr. Nabarro
Can my right hon. Friend say what action he is taking to prevent the future publication of matters of this kind, of a promotional advertising character, by the Electricity Authority and to restrain them from publishing these wholly misleading and inaccurate statements?
§ Mr. H. Morrison
Will the right hon. Gentleman convey the sentiments of the hon. Member to the Minister of Housing and Local Government and ask him not to promote popular literature, such as "Operation Rescue," in support of a particularly controversial Bill?
