HC Deb 13 July 1970 vol 803 cc1122-3
10. Mr. Iremonger

asked the Minister of Technology if he will publish a White Paper explaining the difference between high, medium and low speed gas for domestic and industrial use.

Sir J. Eden

No, Sir. My hon. Friend should ask the Chairman of the Gas Council for the information he requires.

Mr. Iremonger

If the truth is that the term "high-speed gas" has no valid meaning, will the Minister tell those who are responsible that it is inappropriate to use public money to promulgate a lie? Will he tell them to put the advertising in better hands than the hands of the phoney con men it has been in?

Sir J. Eden

The question of advertising policy is a matter for the Chairman of the Gas Council.
