§ Mr. Mike Thomas
asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection when she expects to receive the report of the National Consumer Council on the effect of energy prices and the budgets of low income households.
§ Mrs. Shirley Williams
I expect to receive the full report of the council on this subject in the late summer. I have, however, today received an interim report from the council which, I understand, it intends to publish very shortly. I shall arrange for copies to be placed in the Library of the House as soon as they are available.
