HC Deb 30 November 1939 vol 355 c282W
Major Carver

asked the Minister of Transport whether in view of the special announcement in September of the 75 per cent. rationing scheme for electric light which was later increased to 100 per cent., it is his intention that consumers who were bound to use a certain minimum quantity, and who by reason of the announcement relating to 75 per cent. have saved and not consumed the intermediate 25 per cent., should now be charged the full minimum consumption to which they were previously committed before the Government announcement?
