§ Mr. Oakes
asked the Secretary of State for Energy (1) what estimate he has made of the saving of energy which would result from an increase in the use of cold water detergents by domestic and industrial consumers;
(2) if he will discuss with the major detergent manufacturers the supply of liquid cold water detergents to the United Kingdom market.
§ Mr. John Moore
My Department has not made any estimate of the energy savings which would result from an increased use of cold water detergents. My officials will hold discussions shortly about cold water detergents with representatives of the detergent industry and other interested parties. The supply of liquid cold water detergents to the United Kingdom market will be included in these discussions.
