HC Deb 18 June 1974 vol 875 c125W
Mr. George Rodgers

asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will give appropriate general directions to discontinue the practice of permitting the use of premises owned by nationalised industries and the services of their employees to further the sales of gas and electricity hardware on behalf of private enterprise organisations.

Mr. Varley

I am not sure what practices my hon. Friend has in mind, but in any case he will be aware that the retailing activities of the gas and electricity industries are matters for their own commercial judgment.
