§ Mr. Hannam
asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will make a statement on the future of the advisory council for energy conservation.
§ Mr. Mellor
The advisory council on energy conservation has made a significant contribution to increasing the nation's awareness of the crucial role of energy conservation in our energy policy. The Government see a continuing role for the council in its valuable work. My right hon. Friend is therefore extending its mandate for a futher two years from 1 January 1982.
