 Abstract (Document Summary)

LONDON--You can be fined anywhere from $400 to $2,000 for keeping warm in Britain today, that is, if you do it with electricity during the "switch-off" between 9 and 12 and 2 and 4. The police, if they suspect you of doing so, have authority to enter your house and make a case against you. In case they might overlook you, the "public," that is, your neighbors, are invited to keep a sharp eye out and report any possible offenders.
