§ 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.
