HC Deb 06 December 1979 vol 975 c317W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will set up an inquiry to ascertain to what extent there would be a saving if gas and electric meters were read at the same time by one meter reader, and to what extent a self-customer meter reading system operating return paid cards would reduce the costs of gas and electricity.

Mr. Norman Lamont

No. This is a matter for the industries. I shall ask the chairmen to write to the hon. Member.
