§ Mr. Mike Thomas
asked the Secretary of State for Energy what examination his Department has made of the value and practicality of "energy billing" rather than separate billing for coal, oil, electricity and gas, or any two of these products.
§ Mr. Varley
Studies which have been made of joint billing by the gas and electricity industries have not justified any change of practice. There have been no30W studies of joint billing involving the other fuels, which are retailed by private concerns.
