HC Deb 21 December 1973 vol 866 c483W
Mr. Churchill

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what fuel saving, if any, will result from his decision to allocate Saturday rather than a weekday as one of Trafford Park's three working days; and if he will reconsider this decision.

Mr. Emery

It is not possible to quantify the savings by individual firms. It is necessary at present to specify the days on which electricity may be used to ensure that, if rota cuts become necessary, industry and commerce can have three consecutive days with uninterrupted supply of electricity. We will, however, keep the position under review and consider, if circumstances allow, whether it will be possible to rotate the days on which the use of electricity is permitted.
