HC Deb 23 November 1981 vol 13 c276W
14 Mr. Geoffrey Johnson Smith

asked the Secretary of State for Energy what measures his Department is taking to encourage domestic conservation of energy.

Mr. Mellor

Our information campaign explains both the benefits of energy conservation and the methods, two of which, loft and tank insulation, attract partial grants from local authorities funded by Department of the Environment. Other measures include our work towards greater heating efficiency under the ECA 1981 and support for voluntary organisations' conservation initiatives.

19. Mr. Watson

asked the Secretary of State for Energy whether he is satisfied with current measures to promote energy conservation.
