HC Deb 30 June 1960 vol 625 c148W
Mr. Mason

asked the Minister of Power if he is aware that the number and diversity of fuel advertisements claiming to be the best for industrial and domestic heating purposes are causing much confusion; and whether he will consider setting up a central agency within his Department to give advice on the use of fuels.

Mr. Wood

The answer to the last part of the Question is, "No". The National Industrial Fuel Efficiency Service exists to advise upon the use of fuel in industry and commerce; and I do not think that there is sufficient need for a governmental agency to advise the domestic consumer to justify the expenditure involved.
