§ MR. KIMBER
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he has received the Evidence and Proceedings of the Lords' and Commons' Joint Committee on Electric Energy as well as their Report; what course the Board of Trade are adopting upon that Report; 808 and when the Evidence and Proceedings will be circulated among Members of this House and accessible to the public?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE
I have seen the Report of the Lords' and Commons' Joint Committee on Electrical Energy, but not the evidence and proceedings. The Report will be carefully considered by the Board of Trade, but legislation will be required to give effect to some of the Committee's recommendations, and I am afraid the prospect of passing a Bill during the present Session is very small. I have no information as to when the evidence and proceedings will be circulated.
