HC Deb 10 August 1876 vol 231 c969

asked the President of the Board of Trade, Whether, in the event of any scheme being submitted to the Board of Trade for the amalgamation of the South Metropolitan Gaslight and Coke Company with any other Gas Company, the Board of Trade will make provision in such scheme that the maximum and standard price of 3s. 6d., limited by the Acts relating to the South Metropolitan Gaslight and Coke Company for gas supplied within the district of that Company, shall continue to be the standard price for gas within that district?


Until such a scheme as is supposed is submitted I am unable to say beforehand what provision it would be necessary to insert in it before the Board of Trade could recommend it for confirmation by Order in Council.
