HC Deb 19 December 1975 vol 902 c883W
Mr. Rost

asked the Secretary of State for Energy how much has been advanced to date under the loan scheme for energy saving in industry; how many individual loans have been arranged; and what in-investigations are being undertaken to establish why there has been no greater take up.

Mr. Eadie

Six formal loan offers have been made at a total value of £231,300, of which five have so far been accepted, and a payment of £38,000 on the first loan is about to be made. Information about attitudes to the scheme has been accumulated by my Department and by the regional offices of the Department of Industry in the course of their contacts with industry.
