§ 46. Mr. Willey
asked the Minister for Energy how many firms in the Northern Region and Sunderland, respectively, have been exempted from power restrictions; if he will list the firms which have applied for exemption and have been refused; and if he will make a statement.
§ 48. Mr. Driberg
asked the Minister for Energy if he will clarify his official statements, in connection with the fuel emergency, on special concessions to exporters, bearing in mind the difficulties of such relatively small firms as the Magnavox Electronics Company of Barking, which export the whole of their product to the United States of America and are therefore unable to maintain their dollar earnings by reducing domestic sales.
§ Mr. Pavitt
asked the Minister for Energy whether, in the event of cuts of electric power being made to industry, he will permit the timing of those cuts to be made by individual factories where the supply is by meter and the percentage of total cut-back can be easily varied.
