asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what suggestions he has made to any sections of the gas-producing undertakings to formulate proposals; whether he proposes to set up a committee to hold an inquiry to consider the conditions of the industry; whether he is yet in a position to give the names of the individuals who have been invited to join the committee; and what interests they represent?
