§ 106. Brigadier Peto
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he has considered the suggestions put forward by the Barnstaple Borough and Rural District Councils for re-zoning the counties of Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and Gloucester into one zone in which there should be one standard price charged for coal; and whether he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Joynson-Hicks
My right hon. Friend cannot accept this suggestion which would involve substantial increases in price to a large number of consumers, particularly those in Somerset and Gloucester.
