HC Deb 03 July 1968 vol 767 c225W
35. Mr. Eadie

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what representations he has received from the National Farmers Union about fuel costs; and to what extent he has considered publicising the cost advantages of solid fuel.

Mr. Buchan

Over the past year my Department has received representations from the National Farmers' Union of Scotland about the adverse effect of increased oil heating costs on glasshouse growers.

With regard to the second part of the Question, that is a matter for the National Coal Board.
