§ MR. BARTLEY (Islington, W.)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he will grant the Return showing the results of the expenditure on the supply of electricity by local authorities on the Paper this day.
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD of TRADE (Mr. GERALD BALFOUR,) Leeds, Central
I think that the time 188 has come when a Return giving the expenditure on the supply of electrical energy is desirable. The form of the Return suggested by my lion, friend is, I think, capable of improvement. I will consider the matter and communicate further with him.
