§ 91. Mr. RENDALL
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that residents in Kingswood, just outside the boundaries of the City of Bristol, had their houses wired for electric light several months ago in anticipation of the Board of Trade's sanction which would follow the passage of a Bill presented by the Bristol Corporation; whether this Bill is being opposed by the Keynsham and District Electric Company; and, if so, can he say whether the Board of Trade have any power to expedite proceedings and so secure for the residents of Kings-wood the electric light they require?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of TRANSPORT (Mr. Neal)
I have been asked to reply to this question. The Bristol Corporation Bill, which contains provisions authorising the Corporation of Bristol to supply electricity in Kingswood, has been passed by this 1660 House and is awaiting Report in another place.
