§ Sir W. Darling
asked the Minister of Supply if it is his intention to continue to encourage the manufacture and sale of electric heating appliances during the shortage of fuel and power.

The manufacture of these appliances is controlled by the Electrical Appliances (Control of Manufacture and Supply) Order, 1942. In agreement with my right hon. and learned Friend the President of the Board of Trade, we are restricting production for the home market to essential requirements, whilst124W at the same time encouraging maximum production for export.
