HC Deb 11 January 1977 vol 923 cc444-5W
24. Sir J. Langford-Holt

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he is satisfied that the new code of practice for the gas and electricity industries will be adequate to cope with the problem of social security recipients who are threatened with the cutting off of their supplies.

Mr. Deakins

I am sure that the fuel industries' code of practice, together with the other measures the Government have introduced, will go a long way towards helping poorer consumers cope with the problem of paying for fuel.
