asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he will make some extra allotment of fuel to hotel keepers in seaside holiday resorts in order to enable them to make the necessary cooking and hot water arrangements for holiday-makers.

I regret it is not possible to make additional supplies of fuel available to hotel keepers in seaside holiday resorts, but supplies of fuel to hotels generally are being kept under review.

Is my right hon. Friend aware that I have received assurances from hotel keepers in my constituency that they will be unable to cater and give the ordinary cooking and hot water facilities for guests during the summer season, and for the sake of the national morale will he do something about it?
