§ Mr. Armstrong
I have recently arranged for a working party to be set up consisting of representatives of my Department, the Department of Energy,148W the Welsh Office, the local authority associations and the New Towns Association. It will review the information currently available on heating systems with a view to producing advice for local authorities, tenants and others on heating systems and insulation in new and existing houses.
