HC Deb 02 November 1970 vol 805 c254W
Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether he will give general directions to the Gas and Electricity Councils to advertise more widely the availability of postcards which allow meters to be read by the consumer, and so avoid delays and inaccuracies in estimates of consumption.

Mr. Ridley

No. This is a matter for the industries and general directions would be inappropriate.
