HC Deb 07 May 1952 vol 500 cc46-7W
Mr. Philips Price

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether, in view of the extent to which greater fuel saving might be achieved by increasing the efficiency of stoking, he will consider the desirability of calling a conference at an early date of representatives of employers and trade unions concerned, with a view to evolving a plan for the certification of stokers.

Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd

The certification of stokers is being considered by my Fuel Efficiency Advisory Committee. I propose to await their recommendations before considering the desirability of calling the interested parties together.
