HC Deb 01 July 1957 vol 572 c677
18. Captain Pilkington

asked the Paymaster-General if further consideration can be given to the abolition of local fuel overseers in favour of regional officers.

Mr. Maudling

It has always been our policy to concentrate fuel control work in fewer offices covering larger areas, but we have found, as explained to my hon. and gallant Friend in a letter last April, that the organisation needs to be on a more local basis than could be provided by regional officers alone.

Mr. Nabarro

Sack the lot. There are far too many bungling bureaucrats.
