30. Mr. Dykes

asked the Secretary of State for Energy what steps he intends to take to obtain the reduction in the consumption of central heating in both public and private buildings by persuading users to switch on later in the autumn than at present.

Dr. John A. Cunningham

We shall continue to encourage the more economical heating of buildings and in particular the use of controls. which can prevent unnecessary heating when the weather is mild.
