HC Deb 31 March 1958 vol 585 c82W
51. Mrs. Hill

asked the Paymaster-General how many local fuel advisory committees appointed in 1939 are still in existence how often they meet; and who bears the cost of them.

Sir I. Horobin

These Committees were appointed at the beginning of the war to assist and advise local fuel overseers, their approved costs being met by my Department. Their appointment was actually made by the local authorities, and as in most cases the authorities no longer feel the need for their advice they have generally fallen into disuse.
