asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he is aware of the useful work being performed by the Women's Advisory Council on Solid Fuel in the encouragement of the intelligent domestic use of solid fuel; and what practical assistance is given by his Department to the work of this organisation.

Yes. I am aware of the excellent work done by the Women's Advisory Council on Solid Fuel to further the intelligent use of solid fuel in the domestic field. This comprises education, information, and service to the general public by means of training courses, conferences, exhibitions, demonstrations and publications on the efficient use of solid fuel. The technical advice of my regional fuel engineers is always available to the Council's regional organisers and every encouragement is given by my Ministry to their work.
