HC Deb 25 January 1982 vol 16 c233W
Mr. McCrindle

asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he will extend the scheme granting incentives to industry to switch from oil-fired to coal-fired boilers to non-manufacturing industry and to furnaces and kilns.

Mr. loan Evans

asked the Secretary of State for Industry whether, in view of the fact that industry has not taken up all of the £50 million allocated to convert boilers from oil-firing to coal, he will now accept applications from firms engaged in the distributive trades.

Mr. MacGregor

These suggestions will be considered in the current review of the scope and coverage of the coal-fired boiler scheme.
