HC Deb 12 May 1952 vol 500 c75W
5. Mr. Anthony Greenwood

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what saving of fuel he estimates has resulted from short-time working in the textile industry.

Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd

I am not able to answer this Question precisely, but I can say that coal consumption in the textile industries so far this year is about 8½ per cent. down as compared with last year.
