HC Deb 07 July 1961 vol 643 c168W
Captain Kerby

asked the Minister of Power if he will give a general direction to the Gas Council and the National Coal Board not to publish any further advertisements in the national Press drawing attention to the benefits from the nationalisation of the gas and coal industries.

Mr. Wood

I think my hon. Friend has in mind an advertisement which claims that nationalised industries can improve their service to the public by enterprise and sensible co-operation. I can see no reason to disagree with this.
