HC Deb 18 November 1958 vol 595 c134W
98. Mr. Nabarro

asked the Paymaster-General what steps he has taken to encourage thermal insulation of existing industrial, domestic and commercial buildings; and what further steps he contemplates.

Sir I. Horobin

It is recognised that for existing buildings compulsory standards are inapplicable, but the Government have given active encouragement to their insulation by publicity and the promotion of research. The incentive to reduce fuel costs where possible is so strong that my noble Friend does not contemplate any additional measures.
