§ 19. Mr. Proctor
asked the Secretary of State for Energy how many officials in his Department are concerned primarily with energy efficiency.
§ Mr. Proctor
Will the officials in the Department of Energy consider working out an energy conservation scheme for industries such as the paper and board industry and other industries that are heavy users of energy?
§ Mr. Campbell-Savours
As supply side energy schemes, such as the construction of the national grid in the 1930s, put hundreds of thousands of people back to work in Britain, why do not the Government adopt a demand side energy scheme based on a national programme of energy conservation, thereby putting 100,000 people back to work in the way put forward by the group of eight representing the construction industry in evidence to the Select Committee on Energy?
