HC Deb 12 November 1968 vol 773 c87W
Mr. Eadie

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what advice he has given about domestic coal heating in the county of Midlothian to the Scottish Special Housing Association.

Mr. Ross

I have given no special advice relating to Midlothian. The choice of the form of heating in new houses built by public housing authorities is a matter for each authority, subject to the appropriate minimum standards being satisfied and, in the case of coal-fired heating appliances, to their being capable of burning smokeless fuels.
