HC Deb 08 December 1949 vol 470 cc178-9W
Mr. Blackburn

asked the Minister of Health what effective progress has been made during the past few years to ensure that up-to-date heating installations are used in all newly-erected houses, with a view to ensuring the most efficient use of fuel resources available.

Mr. Sevan:

It has been for more than 12 months a condition attached to the approval of all housing schemes submitted to my Department that the main solid fuel appliance in each house is one of those tested and passed as efficient by the Ministry of Fuel and Power.
