HC Deb 15 April 1948 vol 449 c82W
Mr. Sharp

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what are his proposals for demonstrating U.S. methods of full house heating; to what extent fuel economy is achieved by such methods; and whether the necessary equipment is now manufactured in this country.

Mr. Gaitskell

Arrangements are being made for demonstrations of whole house heating by different methods in 48 houses on selected local authority estates. It will not be possible to assess the results until the demonstrations have been in operation for twelve months. All the heating equipment to be employed is being manufactured by firms in this country.
