§ 90. Mr. Hylton-Foster
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if he will direct that during next winter persons of 70 years of age or more may be allowed to obtain one bag of coal or coke in addition to their allocation to serve as a reserve supply.
§ Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd
I sympathise with my hon. and learned Friend's concern for these old people, but I prefer to adhere to the existing system, which has stood the test of some years' experience, and under which such cases are dealt with by local fuel overseers according to individual need.
