HC Deb 20 February 1984 vol 54 c396W
19. Dr. Mawhinney

asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will make proposals to the chairmen of the industries concerned that separate gas and electricity meter readings should end and a common service be provided.

Mr. Giles Shaw

No. But I do not expect the industries to keep all possibilities of rationalisation under review in the light of developing technology.
