HC Deb 24 July 1973 vol 860 c469W
Sir J. Langford-Holt

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether he will issue a general direction to all area electricity boards that they should cease to offer double-switch sockets to their customers at the price of a single-switch socket, because this is a form of unfair competition in relation to private contractors who cannot send out leaflets advertising such free with electricity accounts.

Mr. Emery

No: this is a matter for the boards.
