asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what instructions have been issued by his Department to factories which have recently converted from coal to oil burning that they may have to revert to coal in the near future; and if he will indicate the present policy of his Department.

No such instructions have been issued by my Department. As regards the second part of the hon. and gallant Member's question, the policy of His Majesty's Government regarding coal/oil conversion was announced by my right hon. Friend on 12th June in reply to a Question by my hon. Friend the Member for Bedford (Mr. Skeffington-Lodge).
