HC Deb 07 February 1975 vol 885 c654W
Mr. Mike Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for Energy whether he will now take steps to establish an energy commission to co-ordinate the production, sale and use of energy in the United Kingdom and, in particular, to help avoid competition between energy industries aimed at increasing level of energy usage.

Mr. Varley

I am not convinced that an energy commission of this kind is needed. I shall be ready, however, to strengthen the resources available for advising me on energy matters if that becomes necessary.
