HC Deb 20 March 1947 vol 435 c102W
86. Sir J. Lucas

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if, in cities where there is evidence that an overwhelming number of the citizens desire it, he will permit the switch-on hours to be varied from 12 noon to 2 p.m. to 11.30 a.m. to 1.30 p.m.

Mr. Shinwell

I regret that this would not be practicable.
