HC Deb 24 July 1989 vol 157 c572W
41. Mr. Martyn Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy what priority he proposes to give to the encouragement of energy efficiency and conservation.

Mr. Peter Morrison

The Government attach high priority to the promotion of energy efficiency through the work of the Energy Efficiency Office. Our proposals for the electricity supply industry will give further impetus to the promotion of energy efficiency, in particular through the duties they place on the Director General of Electricity Supply.
