83. Mr. Philips Price
asked the Minister of Works whether, in connection with the fuel efficiency drive, arrangements will be made to remove all impediments from the grant of licences required in connection with the installation of efficient heating apparatus for housing and industrial establishments and for the efficient heat insulation of houses and buildings of all kinds.
§ Mr. Stokes
I know of no impediments to the installation, in new buildings, of efficient heating apparatus or thermal insulation. In the case of existing buildings, applications for licences to improve108W heating and insulation are treated as sympathetically as possible, subject to the limits imposed by the capital investment programme.
