HC Deb 08 October 1942 vol 383 c1375W
Mr. Banfield

asked the Minister of Information what were his reasons for releasing paper for the illustrated book issued on behalf of the Ministry of Fuel and Power setting out details as to how local authorities should organise fuel economy campaigns; and whether he will, in future, withhold paper destined for such elaborate publications?

Mr. Bracken

The reasons for releasing paper for this booklet were the acuteness of the problem of saving fuel and the fact that numerous applications were being received from local authorities for advice and guidance as to how they could best assist in the campaign for voluntary economy. This booklet meets their needs in a convenient and practical form and it was not more elaborate than the purpose warranted.
