64. Major BARNES
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what grants or loans have been made to power companies whose undertakings it is proposed to acquire under the Electricity (Supply) Bill since August, 1914, out of public moneys; and if he will state the amount of each grant and loan and the name of the company to whom it has been made?
