Abstract

AS a provider of one of the four basic necessities of life (food, shelter, clothing and warmth), gas is a leader among British industries. It carbonizes annually 20 million tons of coal, making more than 1,700 million therms of gas. It is the nation's third biggest ratepayer, one of its largest employers of capital (£200 million), its seventh largest direct employer of labour.
