HC Deb 14 July 1955 vol 543 c203W
79. Mr. P. Noel-Baker

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power how many domestic solid-fuel appliances of the standard room efficiency of 40 per cent. recommended by the Ridley Commission have been supplied to householders in the United Kingdom since the Commission reported in 1952.

Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd

It is not yet possible to define standards based on room efficiency but up to May, 1955, about 3¾ million appliances of the highest minimum standard of efficiency considered practicable by my Ministry have been delivered to the home market.
