HC Deb 13 February 1945 vol 408 cc53-4W
Mr. R. Duckworth

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what progress is being made to ensure that in the interests of the efficient use of fuel all heating appliances sold for use in domestic premises in this country shall be specified to fulfil adequate performance tests.

Major Lloyd George

Performance standards for most domestic fuel burning appliances or methods of assessing their performance have already been laid down or will be completed shortly by the British Standards Institution. The attention of local authorities has been drawn to these specifications by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Health, and it is hoped that appliances installed in domestic premises after the war will comply with the appropriate standards.
