§ Mr. Murphy
asked the Secretary of State for Energy whether consideration is being given to energy conservation publicity campaigns in conjunction with private enterprise; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Mellor
Yes. The Department's energy conservation publicity campaign has already received generous support from private enterprise. The Department will continue to discuss the timing and content of its campaigns with manufacturers and suppliers and seek their co-operation in the market place. The Department also supplies supplements for use by local newspapers. It offers local suppliers the opportunity of supporting the Government's campaign through their own advertising. Last year the supplement appeared in 537 local newspapers and so far this year over 300 newspapers have agreed to produce the supplement.
